For centuries, the craft of quilting has given the world wonderful and valuable works of folk art. But quilting is also an enjoyable activity for needlecrafters--a source of satisfaction whether practiced as a social "quilting bee" or as a solo activity. This attractive, how-to volume presents twelve projects on progressive skill levels. More than 300 color diagrams and photos show templates, sewing techniques, and beautiful finished items. The book's first project is a small, easy-to-make wall hanging. Projects that follow include a baby's play mat, a cushion made from joined diamond templates, a log cabin bed quilt, a complex but magnificent wall panel, and seven others. The author gives details on materials needed for getting started, offers tips on using different fabrics, threads, frames, and hoops, and instructs on machine quilting. Here is guidance that covers virtually every aspect of quilting, a source of many of tomorrow's most valuable heirlooms.
