Author and needlework expert Celia Eddy says that making a quilt is like baking a cake. First, quilters should know the basic tools and ingredients. Next, they need a formula--or a recipe--to follow. Finally, they must gather all ingredients together and follow the recipe. The Quilter's Recipe Book offers a feast of ideas for piecing, patchwork, and appliqu©--the basic techniques required for producing beautiful quilted items. Easy-to-follow instructions show how to piece the block, and make eight-pointed stars, fans, log cabin blocks, appliqu© blocks, and blocks with curves. Each quilting "recipe" shows how to make a beautiful quilt and includes:
  • A large color photo of the pieced quilt
  • Block diagrams, templates, and drafting instructions
  • The amount of fabrics needed
    This beautiful volume also gives advice on creating imaginative combinations of fabrics and colors. Quilters can choose from 100 traditional and contemporary quilts, and can also use the blocks to create many other beautiful quilted things. Quilt recipes are arranged in order of complexity. More than 400 color illustrations.
