Now with their first book, named after their store (and their passion for fabric!), they spread their reach - and 23 of their vibrant designs - to quilters around the world. Organized by difficulty, from easy to advanced, the irresistible designs in this book range from simple block quilts that bring harmony to contemporary striped, spotted, and floral prints, to classic pinwheel designs featuring 1930s reproduction fabrics, to appliquéd quilts that could be mistaken for antique were it not for the crisp newness of every leaf and petal. Easy-to-follow techniques section covers the basics of patchwork and quilting for novices and anyone who needs to brush up their skills.
