Also for non-quilt makers!
on 29 May 2013
I don't make quilts - and I didn't buy this book to do that. I bought it because it has so many of the Heirloom sewing techniques explained. I am interested in learning and using Heirloom sewing to make things like Christening dresses, Bridal hankies, Bed pillows, cases and covers (not quilts), table runners, mats etc.
This gives you a structure to try out all the different techniques including small projects to make, not just quilts. I intend to make the squares into a reference book for future projects - but you never know I just might be tempted into making a quilt it looks so lovely.
If you want another book on Heirloom techniques then Fine Machine Sewing by Carol Ahles is also really good. http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/1561585866/ref=oh_details_o01_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
