COMPLETE QUILTING COURSE, THE
By Gail Lawther
10 x 10 in. 176 pages. Hardcover. Over 350 full-color photographs, drawings, templates, and patterns. Everyone loves the vibrancy, the warmth, the subtle intricacies of quilts. That they have survived as centerpieces of American decor for centuries is no surprise-the warmth, charm, and striking designs of traditional quilts are equally at home in a rustic house or a modernist apartment. They are today appreciated for their craftsmanship and sophisticated juxtaposition of colors, and have been the subject of museum and gallery shows celebrating them as works of fine art. If you want to fashion your own unique creations, this complete course tells you what you need to get started, how to master all the key quilting techniques, and how to design patterns of your own. Now you can be the proud owner of a beautiful signed quilt without paying an exorbitant price. What's more-that signature will be your own. With step-by-step, illustrated instructions and photographs of the process, this volume offers everything the beginner needs to learn to sew beautiful, heirloom-quality quilts.
