Scrap Quilt Sensation by Katharine Guerrier


Scrap Quilt Sensation by Katharine Guerrier

Katherine Guerrier's expert handling of colour will inspire you to create these stunning scrap quilts. Featuring 12 beautiful scrap quilt designs, many with a unique contemporary twist on traditional designs, this book will delight and inspire quilters young and old! The book builds in complexity, from very simple scrap quilts at the beginning that are suitable for a novice, to more advanced or experimental designs. All the pieces can be rotary cut and quick-piecing methods are used to speed up the construction, but if you prefer to work with paper templates these can be cut using the measurements given in each pattern. The key to the success of Katherine's quilts is her striking use of colour, and the book opens with her in-depth advice on choosing fabrics and colours so that you can achieve the same results. The project instructions that follow are explained in a wonderfully easy-to-follow manner, using Katherine's world-renowned teaching style - with lots of piecing diagrams to show you exactly how the quilt blocks are pieced. The fabric notes that accompany each quilt offer advice on colour and fabric choices to help you achieve appealing results from your own scrap bag. A gallery of small-scale art quilts at the back of the book shows you how you can be more experimental in your work, trying out daring colour combinations and freeform techniques on a small piece, before progressing to a larger quilt. With the advice and inspiration offered in this book you will be able to create these designs at home using your own individual interpretation, helping you to make scrap quilts that are as unique as you are.
