Quick and Easy Quilting Author:Bonnie Leman Here's a book published on fast quilting as you go -- a sensational method known as lap quilting, and instant patchwork. It tells how to make (by hand or machine) superb articles for home and fashion use. Quilt a pillow, potholder, Christmas tree wall hanging, patchwork wreath, pincushion, or some puffy toys for the kids. Make yourself a pad... more »ded knee warmer, hat, vest, evening skirt, belt, or tote bag. And, of course, a quilt!
Step-by-step, the book tells how to: start your quilt; follow or adapt the illustrated tracing patterns; estimate yardage; mark; cut and sew the pieces; quilt individual units or the whole quilt; and use braids, ribbons, rickrack and other trimmings. Complete directions are also given for making such old and new favorites as Cathedral Window, Biscuit Quilt, Yo-Yo Quilt, and Puff Quilt. Get the full coverage on Hawaiian and Italian Trapunto style quilting too!
If you'd like to make beautiful home and fashion accessories on an economy budget, quiltmaking is perhaps the only needle art you can enjoy at little or no cost, using remnants or recycled fabrics. This book introduces easy, modern quilting techniques for newcomers to the art, and gives experienced quiltmakers another slant on traditional methods.« less
