Patchwork quilting has long been a popular craft, but it is now reaching an even wider audience through the imaginative quilts and covers that are on sale commercially in home furnishings departments."Learn to Quilt" is the perfect guide for the complete beginner, starting with a really basic hand quilt, then progressing to simple rotary cutting and machine piecing through to slightly more complex block patterns and some simple design work. Each of the techniques is shown in clear step-by-step photographs with concise instructions, and is followed by a project so the reader can build up skills as progress is made through the book. Each project is illustrated with clear and colourful diagrams. A whole range of delightful patchwork quilts for the home can be made following the techniques explained, from a simple baby's cot quilt to an eyecatching throw or a colourful and cosy cushion quilt. All are made in clear, light, fresh fabrics in 100 per cent cotton. Not only does this book teach new skills, it also provides projects for fabulous quilts to display in contemporary homes.
