"Home Sewn Quilts presents indispensable, straightforward advice for both beginners and experienced quilt makers. Throughout the book you'll find countless ideas and inspiration as well as suggestions for tools and supplies, fabric selection, working with repurposed materials, and specific information on cutting. Each project includes the finished size, a materials list, cutting methods, and step-by-step instructions accompanied by full-color photography and instructional line drawings. The book begins with an extensive section on Patchworks and includes 18 scrap-friendly projects for pillows, table runners, shopping bags, and more. The second part moves into Quilt Making and presents six designs for simple bed-size quilts using Four Square and Brick Wall blocks. The following chapter is for the experienced quilter and presents seven designs using Clamshell blocks as well as Grandmother's Flower Garden, Ohio Star, Jack in the Pulpit, Four Square, and Log Cabin. Author Trine Bakke has included, at the back of the book, an enormously helpful 14 page encyclopedia of quilt-making tips and tricks with entries on hand and machine stitching, working with and without special equipment, how to make templates, applying appliqué, embroidery, assembling the quilt, and types of finishing. Everything is included to get you started whether you're on your first project or looking for some fresh ideas"--Page 4 of cover.
