This book teaches simple techniques to create successful quilts that reflect today's tastes for bold colours and prints, high contrast, and expansive use of negative space. Author Stephanie Soebbing offers 10 step-by-step projects ranging from wall hangings to queen-sized bed quilts.
Simple Quilts for the Modern Home provides all the how-to a beginner quilter needs to know to cut, piece and finish each project, with advice on colour theory, fabric selection and elements of design.
Each quilt provides an opportunity to utilize a new skill, such as strip piecing, using fusible applique and cutting at a 45-degree angle. The results are fresh, bold, contemporary quilts that will appeal to quilt makers of all skill levels.
