How to Design and Create Individual Interpretations of Favourite Quilts

Quiltmaking is not only a practical craft for making bed covers and furnishings, but an artform through which quiltmakers can express themselves in colour and design.

Every quilt is composed of a number of different elements: the overall layout; the choice of pattern; tone; fabric colour; design and texture; the use of sashes and borders; set and style of quilting - all affect the final look of a quilt. To create a quilt with your own unique interpretation, even if the choice is one of the most traditional of patchwork patterns, requires an understanding of how these elements work together.

In THE QUILTERS' KALEIDOSCOPE, Dianne Finnegan, author of the internationally successful PIECE BY PIECE, explains just this. Using over 100 quilts illustrated in lavish full colour as examples, she explains what effects the different elements of a quilt can create and then shows how all these elements can be combined to give new life to traditional patterns and allow quiltmakers to express their individual creativity.

As well, there are 30 quilt patterns with clear instructions, diagrams and templates, plus suggestions for giving the quilts your own personal touch.

THE QUILTERS' KALEIDOSCOPE is an authoritative and inspiring sourcebook that will help you understand how and why quilt design words, and will launch you into the creative world of quiltmaking.
