Synopsis

Denyse Schmidt: Modern Quilts, Traditional Inspiration is a collection of 20 new quilt designs from master quilter Denyse Schmidt. The quilts all feel fresh and modern but simultaneously pay homage to the traditional patters revered by the quilting community. Each quilt design is accompanied by a brief, fascinating history of the pattern that inspired it. All necessary templates are presented full-size on a pull-out pattern sheet at the back of the book. Projects range in complexity from beginner to advanced; clear concise instructions, including a thorough techniques chapter, make recreating them a pleasure. Schmidt explains in her introduction; "Like folk music and tales passed down orally, quilts are graphic representations of stories and ideas that have emerged over the years in endless variations. Handed down from generation to generation evolving slightly each time, the quilting patterns themselves are a living, breathing entity." Denyse Schmidt: Modern Quilts, Traditional Inspiration is an important contribution to the ever evolving quilting tradition and will satisfy the current generation's hunger for quilts that feel modern but are rooted in tradition.
