No more scaling up of blocks. No more tracing patterns. No more gluing designs onto sandpaper or cardboard. Patchwork quilting has never been easier, thanks to the special feature of this volume ? permanent plastic templates. From the four easy-to-use templates provided, needleworkers can create 27 of the most popular patchwork patterns, using traditional handsewing techniques or the sewing machine. Choose from such authentic favorites as Windmill, Susannah, Road to Oklahoma, Stars and Stripes, Puss-in-the-Corner, Ohio Star, Dutchman's Puzzle, Martha Washington's Star, and others. Selected for their relative simplicity, the motifs are still intriguing enough to provide challenges for both beginners and experts. Use the blocks together to create stunning sample quilts, or repeat a single block over and over again for a striking one-design quilt. Many of these blocks produce wonderful optical illusions when an entire quilt is made of the same block. For equally eye-catching results, try repeating two or three different blocks in one quilt. The number of quilts you can make with this volume is virtually limitless! Colors have not been specified for the quilt blocks, but noted needlecraft designer Rita Weiss has indicated light, bright, medium, and dark fabrics as guideposts. Let your imagination dictate your own color scheme and achieve beautiful one-of-a-kind quilts that reflect your unique personality and creativity. You'll find 59 helpful illustrations, plus complete instructions for using the templates, material selection, cutting, sewing ? everything needed for successful quilt-making. Traditional Patchwork Quilt Patterns with Plastic Templates will inspire needleworkers at all levels of expertise. Now you can produce inexpensive, toasty warm, colorful bed coverings that will add distinctive period charm to every bedroom in the house.

A one patch quilt is essentially a patchwork quilt made from a single repeating shape. This is the simplest type of quilt you can make, but with carefully chosen coordinating patterns and colours, the results can be stunning. There are very few books on the market devoted entirely to one-patch quilts, so we expect this to be a popular book by a well-known sewing author. Carolyn Forster, who is an expert quilter, provides the inspiration for making these simple quilts, using a range of lovely fabrics. The book contains 20 projects, each using a different-shaped patch; for example, there are rectangles, hexagons, squares, triangles, diamonds, and so on. The quilts range from those based on a random selection of plain and patterned fabrics, to those that use just two or three different-coloured plain fabrics stitched together to form an interesting geometric design. On the left-hand page of each spread is a template for the basic shape, reproduced at actual size, and some basic instructions for arranging the shapes and stitching them together, showing some different ways of using colour. On the right-hand page is an overhead shot of the finished quilt. Instructions at the start of the book will explain how to enlarge the template if you want to make a larger quilt, and some basic quilting techniques, plus some guidance on how many shapes are needed to make a particular size of quilt. This book will appeal to patch workers, quilters and sewers looking for a source of ideas and inspiration for simple patchwork quilt designs that are quick and satisfying to make, while also being beautiful.
