Synopsis

Whether it's a Boston Commons, Trip Around the World, Nine Patch, or Irish Chain, best-selling author Blanche Young and her daughter Dalene Young Stone show you how to give your favorite traditional quilt a new twist through the creative use of fabric. This delightful book has over 26 projects showing new streamlined construction techniques utilizing the rotary cutter and your sewing machine. The older methods are still valid, but the new techniques presented in this book were developed to use with the tools available to us today.

Blanche Young is a familiar name and face in the world of quilting. She has had a life-long romance with fabric and sewing machines. Blanche has been teaching quiltmaking since 1970, after having worked for a dress factory and major sewing machine companies. By applying time-saving cutting, sewing, and construction techniques to her quiltmaking, she developed innovative methods that have made complex pieced patterns quicker and easier. Blanche is the author or co-author of ten books and many patterns. Over the years, Blanche has taught and lectured all across the United States and in Japan and Norway. She has been the Featured Artist at numerous quilt shows. In October 2001, at Quilt Festival in Houston, Texas, she and her daughter Helen Young Frost were two of the six women chosen for a Special Exhibit entitled: "Women Who Challenged Quilting." Blanche is a true pioneer in quilting. A prolific quiltmaker, Blanche makes several dozen quilts each year. She has donated more than sixty quilts for fundraising purposes to quilt guilds and groups across the country. Blanche moved from California to Hurricane, Utah, in 2001. She has seven grown children, two dozen grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.
