When Quilt Designers Think Small
Innovative Quilt Designs to Wear, Give, or Decorate your HomeBook - 2004
Quilters want to make small but wonderful items to wear, give, or decorate their homes. "Small" is a key characteristic because quilters who are busy or love to make gifts look for projects that take less time and material than a bed quilt or large wall hanging. When Quilt Designers Think Small presents 20 projects all small in size, but huge in creativity. Each is a unique, imaginative design by one of ten top quilters we challenged to "think small." For example, one designer made a quilted glasses case embellished with a beaded dragonfly. A second topped a storage box with bright, 3-D quilted flowers. Other projects include a crazy-quilted purse accented with fabric feathers, a quick-pieced checkerboard that rolls up for travel, a quilted cover for an organizer, a foiled velvet pillow, appliqu¬ placemats, even paper-pieced greeting cards. The impressive designs have a variety of styles and use the hottest techniques of quilting and the fabric arts. Each project has detailed, step-by-step instructions and is fully illustrated with color photography, line drawings, diagrams, and templates. Soon quilters everywhere will be thinking small.
