Patchwork, appliqué, and whole-cloth stitching—3 quilting styles and 20 great projects.Ready, Set, Quilt provides new quilters with 20 easy accessories and home accents to make by hand or machine. The early chapters teach the basics of hand- and machine-quilting techniques and introduce all the essential tools and materials. Later chapters give a new twist to the traditional quilting techniques of patchwork, appliqué, and whole-cloth stitching. Readers will be inspired by what they can create with just a little imagination and a few, simple, fabric shapes. Projects include coverlets, pillows, wallhangings—and even an appliquéd nightshirt and blue-jean jacket. Ready, Set, Quilt provides first-time quilters with an introduction to three of the most popular quilting techniques—and a range of easy and inspiring projects to try out their skills. The spiral, stand-up format makes it easy for readers to follow the instructions while they work on each project. This book has clear written instruction and step-by-step sequences, inspiring photographs of finished objects (on models in the targeted age group), and a helpful glossary of specialty terms.
