Description

Each of the pairs of quilts in this gorgeous new book by quilters Kathy Doughty and Sarah Fielke springs from a single idea or shared moment of inspiration. The results - like non-identical twins - are inextricably linked, yet intriguingly different. With their reinterpretation of traditional designs, as well as a characteristic bold use of colour and dazzling patterns, the quilts will appeal to quilters of all levels - from new quilt-makers looking for the next challenge to experienced quilters ready to embrace some of the more complex projects. With practical step-by-step instructions, a comprehensive basics section and glorious photographs, this is a book to make your fingers tingle with sheer inspiration.show more

Our customer reviews

I love this book as much as their first and I wish I had bought it sooner! Their first book was amazing and I wondered if this one would be as good but it is. The layout and photography is wonderful, lots of colour detailed photos of the finished quilts, including a flat shot, good instructions and at the back there is a whole section about how to start quilting. You know how when you are looking at a house with the intention of buying it - you have to look past the paint colours and the wallpaper and think about how you would like to see the house? Well I think sometimes quilt books are a bit like that, and while some of the quilts featured are not worked in colours that I would choose, I can see myself taking a lot of inspiration from this book.show more
