More About This Title The Gentle Art of Quilt-Making


Beautifully photographed, with wonderfully simple instructions, this approachable book contains Jane Brocket's lovely writing on her personal experience of making each quilt, as well as 15 projects for readers to try. There’s a Russian Shawl Quilt, inspired by traditional motifs of Russian folk art, a Floral Frocks Quilt inspired by summer dresses, flower gardens and herbaceous borders and a Suits and Ties Quilt reusing sober woollen suiting contrasting with extravagant silk ties designed in an Irish Chain. Finally, a practical section covers all the knowledge you’ll need—from chain-piecing, hand-quilting and sandwiching to binding, storage and caring for your quilt. Armed with the design tools, you can embark on your quilting journey and begin creating your own personal masterpiece.


Jane Brocket is the author of many books including The Gentle Art of Domesticity, The Gentle Art of Knitting and Quilt Me! Her blog, yarnstorm, was named one of the five best craft blogs in BBC Homes & Antiques magazine’s ’50 best blogs 2012’.
