The Gentle Art of Quilt Making : 15 Projects Inspired by Everyday Beauty Hardback
by Jane Brocket
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.

Simple designs but spectacular fabrics make the patterns and inspirations in this book desirable.
