Lines by Design Quilts: 17 Projects Featuring the Innovative Designs of Esch House Quilts
Discover the beauty of a simple line!
A line is any shape distilled to its most basic form--but it has unlimited potential! From bold, straight lines to lush curves and lines that draw pictures, Lines By Design will show you how to get the maximum effect out of minimum composition.
Using bias applique, machine applique and traditional piecing techniques, author Debbie Grifka offers designs for bold, modern pieces for your home. Featuring twelve bed-sized quilts plus pillows, placemats, table runners and more, you'll be able to choose from something pictorial, such as Community Isolation, featuring outlines of houses and trees, or try your hand at an updated classic, such as Forever, a riff on the classic Double Wedding Ring design.
No matter which design you choose, you're sure to fall in love with the simple elegance of lines.
Debbie Grifka began sewing as a young girl and took up quilting as an adult. She fell in love with the minimalism and negative space of modern quilting and began designing quilt patterns and blogging in 2009. Her patterns have appeared in Quilting Arts Gifts, Stitch and Modern Patchwork among others. Her blog, Esch House Quilts, offers patterns and techniques for quilters.
