Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Every quilt tells a story. But when scraps from personal items are incorporated--a baby blanket, a vintage T-shirt, Dad's favorite tie--that quilt becomes a cherished keepsake. "Quilt Love "offers today's quilters a modern twist on free-form, scrap, and patchwork quilting by combining a welcome blend of quilting technique and pattern ideas for incorporating fabric mementos into quilts large and small. And with inexpensive stash quilting gaining popularity, this contemporary resource is sure to please. Quilt designer extraordinaire Cassandra Ellis guides both novice and savvy quilters through an array of exciting projects that are perfect for celebrating friendships, weddings, births, and for commemorating people and important events. Packed with 200 detailed photographs, "Quilt Love "shows quilters how to easily create modern heirlooms to be passed down from generation to generation.
