Prepare to be inspired. This book shows novice and expert quilters alike new ways of planning, designing, and constructing contemporary quilts. The Modern Quilt Workshop takes you through every step of making a quilt, encouraging you and challenging you along the way. You'll learn basic principles of quilt design, as well as new technical skills that will make your quilts more beautiful, more durable, and more fun to make. Never before published, these breathtaking patterns were created to help you learn specific design and technical skills. Want to learn how to piece circles flawlessly? Need to fine-tune your color choices? Confused about how to choose quilting patterns? Follow the step-by-step diagrams and you'll be mastering new design concepts and innovative techniques with each new project. Each of the 15 quilt projects shows the level of difficulty, lists the skills you'll learn, and shows how each quilt might look in different color combinations. Design tips in each chapter teach you what to look for in fabrics, or options for how to quilt the quilt. Measurements and yardage requirements are provided for 4 sizes, from baby quilts to bed quilts. Cutting templates, and tips for using them, are included. A thorough section on quilt construction and assembly helps even the first-time quilter learn the basics of cutting, piecing, aligning seams, thread color selection, choosing batting, quilting, and binding. Beginning quilters will love the simple, yet sophisticated, patterns that can turn a pile of cotton fabric into a work of art. Advanced quilters will hone technical and design skills, as well as master new techniques, such as improvisational piecing and working with sophisticated color palettes. Whether you wish to create a treasured family heirloom or a beautiful gift for a friend, these unique patterns will inspire you to try something new.
