Quilt Me! : Using inspirational fabrics to create over 20 beautiful quilts Hardback

2 out of 5 (1 rating)


An exciting new title from the leading quilt author, Quilt Me! celebrates Jane Brocket's liberated, joyous, colourful approach to quilting using wonderful fabrics and simple shapes and patterns to create stunning effects.

Taking 'inspirational fabrics' as its starting point, the book explores not only the designs available in cotton, made-for-the-market quilt/patchwork fabrics, but also moves into a new realm of alternative fabrics that can be used to make beautiful, practical, usable quilts.

It is as if a quilt-maker has walked into the haberdasher's of her dreams and has explored the many possibilities that traditional fabrics offer, fabrics such as ticking, linen, gingham, tweed, tartan, suiting, shirting, velvet, silk and calico.

With clear instructions for a fantastic variety of quilts, Quilt Me! recreates the excitement, known to all quilters, of rummaging through a new stash of fabrics. The author describes the joy to be found in a wonderful colour scheme, design or pattern, as well as the aesthetic and practical advantages of making the most of what we find in traditional fabric shops and in our textile heritage, finding alternatives to quilt cottons, and casting a new eye over fabrics made for other purposes such as clothes, curtains, upholstery and interior decoration.

Review by

Don't buy this if you want detailed information including illustrations informing you how to make 20 different types of Quilts!! The book was full of picture of fabrics and some completed quilts.I had a kindle mobi version of the book that was frustrating to read since it was poorly formatted.
