Super Quick Colourful Quilts : 20 Vibrant Designs for Fast Quilts Paperback / softback

Description

Super Quick and Stunning Quilts! The twenty gorgeous patchwork quilts in this collection are designed for beginners and any quilter whose time is limited.

Using just three shapes, they show an amazing variety of designs made all the more exciting by a clever choice of fabrics in three groups of colourways.

These shapes are cut quickly using the rotary cutter rather than with a template, and they are machine stitched together with chain-piecing wherever possible.

The quilt "sandwich" (of backing fabric, batting and the pieced top) is held together with machine quilting, big stitch hand quilting or with simple ties and buttons.

Two methods are used for the binding--one using four strips applied separately to the four sides, producing abutted corners, and the other, slightly more complicated, using a continuous binding, mitered at the corners.

Simple applique is introduced using a heart template and a technique called slashing.

Chenille is used as an alternative to piecing to produce a highly textured surface for a really cuddly quilt.

Inside Super Quick Colorful Quilts - 20 quick step-by-step quilt patterns in a kaleidoscope of colors. - Great for beginners--perfect for quilters in a hurry. - Each quilt made with simple shapes, easy piecing and fast finishing techniques. - Bright designs and in three alternative colorways: primary, bright and pastel. - Amazing variety of designs using just three shapes: squares, rectangles and triangles. - Stylish accents for modern homes: bed quilts, cot quilts, throws and wall hangings.
