Full Description

Have you ever thought about creating a patchwork quilt, but decided it would take too long or be too difficult? If so, Quilting Basics is your perfect introduction to this popular craft. Beginning with the 'Getting Started' section, quilting teacher Michael Caputo will show the tools and equipment, and demonstrate the sewing skills you will need, plus the basics of constructing your quilt. Section two is a series of 12 workshops, each introducing you to new skills, with a project at the end which enables you to practise what you have just learned - a great way to get to grips with the theory. As you progress through the workshops, you'll learn how to join pre-cut squares, sashing, piecing and paper piecing, using templates, and the different types of applique. All through the workshops there are helpful hints on choosing colours and patterns that will work together, and variations on the basic blocks show how those choices will affect the end result. With step-by-step text, accompanied by clear illustrations, you'll soon be making a table runner and cushion covers, before moving on to wall hangings, a cot quilt and a throw. The final project is a full-size bed quilt with elaborate stitching to really show off all your new skills.  Contents: 1 X 160 Page Paperback With 80 Colour Illustrations Author: Michael Caputo Author Bio - Michael Caputo was born in New York, USA, lived in east London for several years, and recently relocated to North Carolina.
