Beautiful new book: Inspired by Vintage Quilts

This special publication is a selection of 15 stunning quilt projects from the pages of Quilters Companion magazine. The quilts fall into three categories; pieced, appliqué and medallion. The large format and thick glossy pages makes this a stunning quilting book you will happily have adorn your coffee table – that is, when you are not making all the beautiful quilts found inside! Quilt makers include Chris Jurd, Robyn Falloon, Lynne Alchin, Anne Sommerlad and Michelle Yeo.

The projects offer a variety of techniques such as foundation piecing, templates and rotary-cut pieces that can be stitched together by hand or machine. Some designs also feature appliqué.  But the quilts all have one thing in common – they are all inspired by vintage quilts. A pattern sheet is included with all designs at 100%, so no scaling and photocopying required.
