Required for # 203-303

  • Softcover, 216 pages, from Krause Publications
    Mastering the variety of quilting techniques can be a challenge, but this book provides quilters with an easy way to try out new methods, textures, and colors, and in the process, build upon their skills. Inside you'll find ten pairs of quilts that each provide a different lesson in quilt-making. By first constructing a small dolly quilt, you'll gain confidence in the techniques that enable you to make its larger companion quilt. Practice traditional quilting techniques, such as creating wedges and flying geese blocks, and experiment with new, less conventional methods, such as deconstructed piecing. Sarah also shares her needle-turn appliqué and hand-quilting techniques.
