Product description


Elaine Hammond knows how important it is that quilts for children should not simply be adult quilts on a smaller scale. Bright, interactive and certain to enhance any child's room, all the quilts in this beautiful book have been specially designed with children in mind. The fourteen quilts described are organised into four age ranges - from the tiniest baby to the sophisticated teenager. All are great fun, full of detail and colour: Some, such Lucy's Flying Starts Quilt, take a traditional patchwork block as their inspiration while others provide innovative possibilites, such as the Chess Quilt which comes ready to play. Detailed instructions guide you through all the stages of making a quilt, including how to draft designs, make templates, choose and cut fabric, and piece a quilt successfully. Additional instructions are provided for making many smaller items, including a cot bumper, soft toys, a clutch ball, wall hangings, a floor cushion, and a fabric book.

Elaine Hammond, a quilter for more than twenty years, jointly started Patchwork & Quilting magazine in 1985, which was responsible for launching Quilts UK, now one of the largest quilt shows in the world. Elaine's first book, The Absolute Beginner's Guide to Patchwork, Quilting and Applique was published in 1997. Elaine lives in Malvern Link, Worcestershire.
