Quilting from little things... : From Little Things--
Quilting by Sarah Fielke is a showcase of ten quilting techniques and styles. Mastering the variety of quilting techniques can be a challenge, and this vibrant and beautifully photographed book, brimming with Sarah's insider tips, provides the quilter with an accessible way to try out new methods, textures and colours, and in the process build upon their skills. Sarah has designed ten pairs of quilts that each provide a lesson in quilt-making. By first constructing a small dolly quilt, the quilter gains confidence in the techniques that enable them to make its larger companion quilt. These beautiful quilts, big and small, provide the opportunity to practise 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 applique and hand-quilting techniques, which give her quilts their contemporary and unique style. Discover how, from little things, big and exciting things can grow.

Our customer reviews
It is not often you come across a quilt book where you are inspired to do every pattern in the book ! This is one of them. A delightful, fresh book from best seller Sarah Fielke. The photography is beautiful, the use of modern fabrics is inspirational and the patterns unique. The small dolly quilts are fun and a great way to learn new techniques but I want to get into the larger projects to really challenge myself. If there is only one quilt book you buy this year, give yourself a little treat and by this one.show moreby Dana
