From the Author:

Hello, Reader:
 This how-to book was written for quiltmakers, quilt admirers, hopeful quilters, quilters who seek real inspiration...and you. Plain old, extraordinary you.

Why do people make quilts? I stand by the theory that we make quilts for love, out of love, and with love, every time. "Make + Love Quilts: Scrap Quilts for the 21st Century" is a book that celebrates this quilt/love concept by offering designs for 12 original, color-curated scrap quilts to be centerpieces for your home. These quilts are big, meant for beds, and are each perfectly suited to take their place in your nest -- be it modern, traditional, or otherwise.  
Clear instructions are provided; each quilt in the book you can make yourself. None of the patchwork is advanced and all is explained clearly and succinctly. There are instructions on how to make a quilt from first stitch to final binding. But alongside the schematics and the measurements is a touch of history, rich context, and warmth aplenty vis a vis quotes from lovers as diverse as Montaigne, Marilyn Monroe; even Nietzsche makes an appearance in this very special quilt book.
I sincerely hope this book serves as a jumping off point for creative types of all kinds, but of course and especially, for my fellow quilters. In a world of seemingly endless fabric options (welcome to the 21st century!) and designs aplenty, each one of us is capable of being an original creator. There are few activities more rewarding than creating an original quilt and "Make + Love Quilts" is here to help you do just that. 
Piece,
Mary
