A Passion for Patchwork : Over 95 Quilted Projects for All Seasons Paperback
by Lise Bergene
If you are looking for inspiration for your patchwork and quilting, look no further!
This beautifully illustrated book contains a wealth of innovative and adaptable patchwork creations for all seasons - from simple two-hour pieces to more intricate work. Bold, bright and beautiful, the 100 quilting projects range from contemporary purses and bags to a festive Advent calendar and sensational full size quilt designs.
In addition to patchwork, you will find modern applique patterns such as hearts, stars and angels to decorate and customize each of the projects, which include wall hangings, cushion covers, bags, table runners and placemats, and vary in size and scope - from a couple of hours to a weekend or longer.
Each project features actual-size templates, step by step instructions and useful piecing diagrams.
Familiar quilting techniques are joined by some innovative ideas for sewing frayed edge seams, which are used on quilts, bags and cushions to striking effect. The real beauty of this book is the stunning Scandinavian-style designs by Lise Bergene, who's eye for colour and design shine through in every photograph. The result is not only an inspiration source book, but also a practical book of projects that every sewist will want to make - an invaluable book for any quilter looking for new, imaginative and inspirational patchwork designs.
