Hi all! I can’t believe I haven’t had time to blog about this yet, but I have been published again! This time in the new book Quilt Essential: a Visual Directory of Contemporary Patterns, Fabrics and Color by Erin Burke Harris, part of C&T’s “Stash Books” series. If you are new to quilting and want an overview book, this one is a good one. It has a very “Quilt Modern” feel to it: fresh, airy, not fussy, and covers a lot of basics.
I was thrilled when I was invited to submit some quilts for consideration, and even more thrilled when I received a copy and learned I was in the book three times!
The book is divided into four major sections:
- 1. Fabrics: covers types of fabrics, yardage and measuring, and caring for fabrics.
- 2. Colors: color theory, and matching fabrics and colors.
- 3. Designs: Shapes, quilt blocks, block layouts and settings, styles and arrangements, sashing and borders, embellishment.
- 4. Assembling: piecing, quilt sandwiching, quilting methods, bindings.
The book includes profiles of well-known quilters as well as works by other quilters (including me!). Here’s a couple more photos:
If you know of anyone who is beginning their quilt journey or just wants a good single overview book with a fresh feel to it, this book would be just the thing! Thank you Erin for including me!
