Modern Scot Patchwork

Bold Quilts Inspired by Iconic Tartans

Kathy Allen


Learn to make modern, graphic quilts based on the woven patterns of traditional tartans of Scotland!

Though the interweaving of tartan colours can be complex, the author has simplified the instructions for easy piecing. Simply cut strips, make strip sets and subcut sections to make pieces that you can sew together to create rows. With a range of project types for each tartan, from runners and throws to bed-size quilts, there’s something for every quilter.

Includes patterns for clans Elliot, Maxwell, Maitland, Barclay, Hannay, Macrae of Conchra and Fraser, and an original design, Amador, to honour the area where the author lives.
