It's easy to translate the dots and dashes of Morse code into beautiful pieced quilts. The concept is simple and the possibilities are endless! This book shows how to use Morse code to customize quilts with secret messages and hidden meanings. A baby quilt can contain the child's name and birthday-or a wedding quilt might feature the happy couple's names along with the date of their vows.
Favourite quotations, popular sayings and simple sentiments are all wonderful opportunities to create a unique quilt. Morse Code Quilts offers six projects that express the aesthetic of modern quilts, including a wall hanging that says "Love is Love" and a graduation quilt that says "The World Awaits." Author Sarah J. Maxwell provides charts for both letters and numbers and shows how to convert dots and dashes into a quilt layout. She also includes methods to calculate yardage requirements and cutting instructions.
