Patchwork for Beginners
Colorful and creative, a patchwork project has endless possibilities. This easy-to-follow guide offers beginners a practical approach to transforming inspiration into finished products, with an introduction to the essential tools, basic methods and helpful techniques of patchwork, and five simple projects to make: a pin cushion, a square cushion, a windmill crib blanket, appliqué, and a project involving unusual patterns and materials. Beautifully photographed with helpful illustrations of each technique, plus templates for the projects, Patchwork for Beginners contains everything a first-time quilter needs to get started. Published to accompany Quilts 1700-2010, an exhibition opening at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London in March 2010, the book contains inspiring samples from their collection.
Sue Prichard is Curator of Contemporary Textiles at the V&A. She has curated a number of displays and exhibitions including Quilts 1700 – 2010 for which she edited the catalogue.
