The Quilters' Guild Collection: Contemporary Quilts, Heritage Inspiration (Paperback)

Usually despatched within 2 weeks.


"The Quilters' Guild Heritage Collection" is the largest national collection of antique patchwork and quilting in the UK, containing over 450 items that date as far back as the 18th century. In this inspirational book, 12 contemporary quiltmakers each take their stimulus from a different item in the collection to create a stunning modern quilt, demonstrating their unique creative processes along the way. Opening with an authoritative introduction to the history of British patchwork and quilting, from the 17th to the 20th century, the book is an invaluable resource for those seeking accurate historical information. Within the project section, each quilter discusses her approach, illustrated by pages from sketchbooks and work-in-progress samples, giving practical advice on developing ideas and turning them into contemporary quilt designs.
