Create 15 exquisitely detailed miniature quilts with expert guidance from Kumiko Frydl, acclaimed quilt artist.
Kumiko Frydl demonstrates her knowledge and talent in this book which illustrates a variety of quilting techniques. Learn to craft 15 exquisite, intricately worked miniature quilts, each on a different theme – including ornate roses, whimsical pineapples, a stunning beach scene and a Wedgwood-inspired pattern in blue and white. Kumiko guides you carefully through each project using detailed step-by-step instructions, diagrams and close-up photographs of the finished piece, and all the templates and stitching patterns are provided on a fold-out sheet at the back of the book.
This book is for the experienced quilter. The designs are absolutely stunning and very inspiring.
The finished quilts are small, so you are not wasting much time and fabric if you do go wrong, but what is amazing about these tiny creations is the beauty of the designs that clearly makes you want to make one.
The explanations are easy to follow, but the techniques and additional decoration call for some embroidery skills, applique and a knowledge of free motion sewing.
There are some pattern sheets included,and while each design is meant to be a mini quilt, I think a few blocks together would make one stunning larger throw.
