This book has projects suitable for all levels of ability, from simple pieced block designs for the beginner experimenting with colour, pattern and texture to more complex challenges for the experienced needleworker. The Encyclopedia of Quilting and Patchwork Techniques covers both the traditional techniques, such as 'English' or mosaic patchwork, block patchwork and applique, and more recent developments using rotary cutters and sewing machines. The variety of different styles is reflected in an inspirational and colourful gallery of both traditional and contemporary designs. To interpret or reproduce the traditional patterns gives the satisfaction of making something both useful and beautiful. The time and skill expended on historical quilts are apparent in the artistry of contemporary quiltmakers, illustrating the enduring attraction of this imaginative craft.
