Patriotic Modern Quilts includes projects to make fresh, contemporary wall-hangings, lap quilts, and bed quilts that celebrate American heritage and tradition. This book will help new and seasoned quilters learn how to use modern quilt design principles and piecing techniques to create contemporary wall-hangings and quilts. Included are several quilt projects with detailed instructions — including projects with additional sizes and easy ways to change and customize the design. Carole Lyles Shaw, a sought after modern quilt teacher and designer, provides step-by-step explanations for each project.
Are you making a quilt as a gift for a younger soldier, veteran, or first responder? Perhaps you need a quilt for the child of a soldier, veteran, or first responder? These contemporary designs are sure to please younger audiences. This book will appeal to all types of quilters — whether you consider yourself traditional, transitional, contemporary, modern, or simply a quilter who embraces all aspects of the quilt world. Included are projects that a beginner quilter can easily master and more advanced projects that will help all quilters stretch their improvisational quilting design and piecing skills. These patterns are also great for groups or bees that want to collaborate on a project. Many of these projects can be pieced quickly and quilted using simple motifs or straight-line quilting.
FREE GIFT: Lady Liberty Art Print by Garth Glazier
Standing 305-feet tall from ground to torch on an island in Upper New York Bay, the Statue of Liberty — or Lady Liberty, as she’s also known — casts a beacon of light across the world, from our nation’s largest city.
Perched upon a pedestal, the universal symbols of friendship and freedom take center stage as she overlooks the New York City skyline. Dramatic hues of blues and grays are contrasted with the glow of golden yellow to create a geometrically complex structure of shapes — reminding us of the hope that comes with each new day.
