Nearly 20 million Americans are involved in quilting. Many more would like to try but are intimidated by the time and expense that goes into creating large, lavish quilts.
Experienced crafter Betty Auth reveals how A Little Quilting can be just as fun and rewarding—and much faster—than making a full-fledged quilt. Now quilters can finally find a use for those fabric treasures theyve been stashing away, just waiting to be transformed into beautiful items. This book includes a range of small to medium quilted projects made from vintage or new pieces of fabrics—including velvet, lace, silk, and satin—and painted pieces. Full-color photographs and illustrations show how to use a variety of materials and techniques to create purses, pillows, lamp shades, tote bags, album covers, and more.
Complete with a photo gallery of gorgeous finished pieces, this guide can help veterans and beginners create lovely quilted items to give as gifts or keep for themselves.
