A guide to the art of quiltmaking provides twenty patterns for classic patchwork and applique quilts and more than one hundred variations on those patterns

Blackwell North Amer
There may be no greater symbol of the American spirit than the quilt, which is equal parts thrift, skill, patience, and artistry. Pieces of the past, seemingly worthless scraps of fabric are painstakingly, precisely stitched together. The finished quilt is a triumph, an eloquent testimonial to its maker, and a joy for the viewer to behold. Quilt lovers long ago brought these treasures out of the bedroom, and today there are countless creative ways to decorate every room with them. From porch to pantry, quilts bring life to a home. In Country Living's Country Quilts, the editors of Country Living magazine present some of the finest examples of quiltmaking in America.
In addition to this photographic tribute to the quilt, Country Quilts includes complete, easy-to-understand instructions for creating twenty wonderful designs at home. A portrait of the finished quilt accompanies each project, and a table tells you at a glance how much fabric you'll need. The instructions for assembling the quilt are accompanied by colorful, step-by-step illustrations. In addition, full-size pattern pieces, ready to be traced and cut out, are included.
Written by respected experts, the directions are so easy to follow that even the most timid beginner will find them accessible. At the same time, the projects are interesting enough to challenge experienced quilters. Patterns include traditional Squares in Squares, Feathered Stars, Country Lanes, and Acorn Applique.
For the three million quilters in North America today, and for everyone who loves this most American of art forms, Country Living's Country Quilts is a highly useful and truly beautiful book.
