Traditional Patchwork Quilt Patterns with Plastic Templates Book Excerpt:

No more scaling up of blocks. No more tracing patterns. No more gluing designs onto sandpaper or cardboard. Patchwork quilting has never been easier, thanks to the special feature of this volume ? permanent plastic templates. From the four easy-to-use templates provided, needleworkers can create 27 of the most popular patchwork patterns, using traditional handsewing techniques or the sewing machine. Choose from such authentic favorites as Windmill, Susannah, Road to Oklahoma, Stars and Stripes, Puss-in-the-Corner, Ohio Star, Dutchman's Puzzle, Martha Washington's Star, and others. Selected for their relative simplicity, the motifs are still intriguing enough to provide challenges for both beginners and experts. Use the blocks together to create stunning sample quilts, or repeat a single block over and over again for a striking one-design quilt. Many of these blocks produce wonderful optical illusions when an entire quilt is made of the same block. For equally eye-catching results, try repeating two or three different blocks in one quilt. The number of quilts you can make with this volume is virtually limitless! Colors have not been specified for the quilt blocks, but noted needlecraft designer Rita Weiss has indicated light, bright, medium, and dark fabrics as guideposts. Let your imagination dictate your own color scheme and achieve beautiful one-of-a-kind quilts that reflect your unique personality and creativity. You'll find 59 helpful illustrations, plus complete instructions for using the templates, material selection, cutting, sewing ? everything needed for successful quilt-making. Traditional Patchwork Quilt Patterns with Plastic Templates will inspire needleworkers at all levels of expertise. Now you can produce inexpensive, toasty warm, colorful bed coverings that will add distinctive period charm to every bedroom in the house.

Quilting Revealed Book Excerpt:

Quilting is as old as the hills, and for many, has that wonderful combination of domestic necessity, social cohesion, and craftwork and commemoration. Quilting methods don’t vary enormously throughout the world, but the designs are largely specific to a country, or a society, although the traditional American patchwork designs have become loved world wide. It is wonderful to have such a craft, which is a means of handing down traditions amongst womenfolk mainly, and which has an end product that can both look beautiful, and keep you warm at night. An exception to this is of course the Hawaiian quilting tradition, which began under the tutelage of the missionaries, and evolved into a means of recording the Hawaiian beliefs and lives. Their quilts talk of their gods, their departed spirits, the new members of their society yet to be born, and the main historical and cultural events of their society. Their use of the beautiful flowers and the love of their culture give Hawaiian quilting a truly magical and precious quality. In colder climates, the quilting circle was an opportunity for the women to come together, to talk over the major matters of the day and to provide invaluable support for each other.
