Title: Quiltessential: A Visual Directory of Patterns, Fabrics & Colours
Aimed at a modern breed of design savvy sewers, Quiltessential
is a quick-reference
directory of fabric types, color combinations, block settings, and piecing styles that shows
readers how to design their own quilting patterns from the limitless combinations this book
Rather than simply offering a book of designs and projects for the reader to follow, Quiltessential uniquely categorises and explains all these elements, arming the reader with everything they need to know to make informed decisions to design their own quilts. Profiles of contemporary fabric designers, quilters, and sewing virtuosos provide insights, advice, and stunning inspiration to demonstrate how this traditional craft is being reimagined and reinvented by a new wave of artisans.
Divided into four sections, the book is organised by category; Fabric, Color, Design, and
Assembly. Each entry offers clear advice accompanied by illustrations, photographs, charts,
and tables to help the reader choose which options work best for them. It carries a strong visual appeal for the “new wave” of quilters and fabric junkies, quilters who don’t feel held back by guild regulations and aren’t afraid to experiment with time- and money-saving techniques. Tapping into the aesthetic of designers such as Amy Butler, Marimekko, Malka Dubrawsky, Cath Kidston, and Heather Ross. No. of pages:
