Patchwork, also known as pieced work, simply involves sewing together cut pieces of material to create a larger design. This book presents Cath Kidston's new, innovative take on traditional patchwork, which combines established techniques with a more contemporary approach. Mixing her own distinctive prints with vintage fabrics, she has designed 30 original and irresistible projects including not just the pieced quilts that you might expect, but also numerous accessories and home furnishings: bags, cushions, pillowcases, a dog bed, and even a toddler's toy ball. Many of the projects in this guide can be made out of the scraps and leftovers that crafters accumulate, thereby putting all those odds and ends to perfect use. There is a wide range of techniques--from simple machine piecing to more complex patchwork--which makes this is a wonderful book not only for beginners but also for advanced sewers who want to tackle more challenging patch projects. To get you started, the book includes pieces of seven different printed fabrics and instructions to create either a calico bag or a cushion. Each project is shown in detail with color photographs, clearly written instructions, and explanatory diagrams.

Review Text

Más de treinta proyectos que aportan algo nuevo a las versátiles y fascinantes técnicas del patchwork, el appliqué y el trabajo con retazos de tela. Patchwork a mano y a máquina: una gran variedad de posibilidades, bonitas y prácticas, de diferentes tamaños y formas, desde bolsas y artículos para el hogar hasta pelotas o un puf. Un libro que tiene como objetivo ampliar los límites de patchwork tradicional y devolverlo a sus orígenes mediante la reutilización de tejidos de formas innovadoras. Busque entre sus retazos, hojee las páginas de este libro, e ¡inspírese! El patchwork surgió como una labor para ahorrar en una época en que las telas nuevas escaseaban y eran caras, por lo que están muy en sintonía con el espíritu actual de sostenibilidad y reciclaje. El appliqué, o decoración con apliques, tiene mucho que ver con el patchwork, aunque las formas recortadas se cosen o se usan como remiendos sobre otra tela o tejido. Este libro incluye, asimismo, algunas obras de remiendo y otras técnicas más complejas. Con información sobre todas las técnicas de costura que necesitará para crear los proyectos, junto con consejos y pistas para elegir los utensilios, usar una máquina de coser y encontrar los tejidos.
