The author is herself an experienced quiltmaker and she includes a number of her own creations among the 100 examples in the book. Ranging from a traditional log cabin quilt in muted browns and blues to a contemporary bedspread which incorporates singeing and hand-painting, these quilts illustrate the different effects and patterns that can be created by the clever use of colour and technique.

Yet the book is not only a theoretical survey of patchwork quilts, it is also a practical handbook which will enable the reader to sew their own beautiful creations, interpreting age-old ideas in new and original ways. The elements that make up a quilt, such as the overall layout, the choice of pattern, the set of the pieces and the type of fabric are all examined in detail, and there are helpful hints for marking and cutting the fabric correctly and choosing the right materials. By the author of Piece by Piece.
