  • Play-of-Color Quilting

    The energy, bold accents and contrasts speak for themselves in these 24 projects.

    In the friendly, you-can-do-it tone that is her trademark, German quilt designer Bernadette Mayr offers you new ways to think about freestyle colour piecing. These new designs offer you very colourful, playful, wild and geometric quilts to make, or to make your own by experimenting with colour. A few smaller projects, like pillows and a silk evening bag, focus colour play into a smaller piece.

    This guide also serves as a complete resource for new quilters, offering 14 lessons on the important basic quilting skills like cutting shapes, freehand machine embroidery and quilt assembly.

    Welcome to structured improvisation, where there's a plan in place...but still plenty of room to play!

    Learn three methods for sewing together rectangles, squares, strips and even the tiniest fabric scraps to create new yardage; then use the resulting scrappy fabrics in a dozen dazzling step-by-step quilt patterns.

    Start by working with just one colour at a time to get the hang of improv piecing. Soon you'll progress to mixing colours and prints in scrap-packed quilts that will give a happy home to every piece of fabric you've ever saved!
