Brilliant Guide for Quilters,
This review is from: Fat Quarterly Shape Workshop for Quilters (Paperback)
This book is written by the editors of popular quilting e-zine Fat Quarterly. The colourful modern style of the magazine carries over perfectly to this book which teaches you how to incorporate different shapes into your quilt design.
The book is split into 6 chapters, each one focusing on a different shape: Squares & rectangles, circles, triangles, stars, polygons and diamonds. Each chapter features 10 different blocks made up in eye-catching designer fabrics plus a project and a full size quilt using the blocks. A range of different techniques are covered in the book including appliqué, English Paper Piecing, foundation piecing and fussy cutting.
The instructions are easy to follow, and there is a section on quilting basics at the back of the book to help you. You will also find colourful photos and diagrams throughout the book and templates at the end of the book. Personally I love the use of stunning colourful fabrics throughout the book. It would be hard not to be inspired and full of ideas after reading this book.
