Here is an inspiring journey that provides a new way to pass on the gifts of family stories. Award-winning quilter, Mary Kerr, shares tips and ideas on how family memories can live on by creating contemporary quilts from vintage textiles. Repurposing rather than purchasing is the focus here, and through more than 100 images, quilters are encouraged to breathe new life into objects that would have otherwise stayed in the trunk or the dresser drawer. Turn feed sacks, doilies, and vintage clothes with their meaning and stories into lovely modern quilts. Complete with tips for the cleaning and care of textiles and copious design ideas, this is the ideal inspiration book for experienced and new quilters.
Mary Kerr is an American Quilt Society certified appraiser and an award-winning quilter. She is a quilt historian whose lectures and workshops focus on quilt history and the preservation of antique textiles.
