9781564776433: Quilt Revival: Updated Patterns from the `30s

With the need to "use it up and make it do" during the Great Depression, quilting exploded in popularity. By the mid-1930s, over 400 newspapers printed block patterns on a regular basis. Author Nancy Mahoney was lucky enough to find scrapbooks filled with clippings of those patterns. She shares her favorites--along with simplified sewing techniques--in this rare collection.

  • Eleven scrappy quilt patterns include "Chinese Checkers," "Patriotic Star," and "Treasure Chest"
  • Designs feature '30s reproduction fabrics that capture the cheerful colors reminiscent of the era
  • Block patterns are updated with quick cutting and piecing techniques--get that old-fashioned look in less time

Review:

Issue 44 We have had to pry this book away from the Editor before it disappeared for good! We all know she has a passion for antique quilts but we've yet to see her making one! This is a fabulous book for anyone who likes antique quilts and wants to make their own 1930's style quilt. The subtle colour combinations and traditional block designs make this an irresistible book. Choose from 11 scrappy quilt patterns including 'Chinese Checkers', 'Patriotic Star' and 'Treasure Chest'. Tips for quick cutting and piecing techniques mean that you can create a vintage look in no time. Fabrications
