Description

Quilt making can be intimidating. But when you jump in with squares and rectangles, that first step is a lot easier. And that's what a lot of new quilters have done. But there comes a time when squares and rectangles aren't enough. You start thinking about that crazy quilt that grandma had on her bed. Or that Dresden plate quilt you saw at the antique store. And you think, "I wonder if I'm ready...?" In "Modern Designs for Classic Quilts", authors Kelly Biscopink and Andie Johnson teach the reader all they need to know to move beyond the basic quilts modern sewists are growing tired of, and to take the next step to create 12 traditionally inspired quilts. In addition to the projects are step-by-step techniques that will help the reader create and learn new skills she can use again and again on her quilting journey. And 7 variation mini-projects, like pillows, a bib and small blankets, show additional interpretations to help the reader see the endless possibilities of traditional.show more
