5 out of 5 (1 rating)


Bravo to our amazing Jane Brocket who has such a distinct personal flavour and shares with us ways to play with floral fabrics.

I defy anyone who quilts, not to go running to a fabric shop and get stuck into a new project.

Kaffe Fassett * Create totally unique quilts for family and friends * Stunning inspirational photography throughout * Discover how to quilt and design with confidence The Gentle Art of Quilt-Making is a charming, inspirational and practical collection of 15 quilts for would-be quilters by leading author Jane Brocket.

There's a Russian Shawl Quilt, inspired by traditional motifs of Russian folk art, a Floral Frocks Quilt inspired by summer dresses, flower gardens and herbaceous borders and a Suits and Ties Quilt reusing sober woollen suiting contrasting with extravagant silk ties designed in an Irish Chain.

Finally, a practical section covers all the knowledge you'll need - from chain-piecing, hand-quilting and sandwiching to binding, storage and caring for your quilt.

Armed with the design tools, you can embark on your quilting journey and begin creating your own personal masterpiece.
