Whitework Quilting by Karen C. McTavish - Out of Print
Two Signed copies still available!


Whitework Quilting by Karen McTavish combines the best of how-to, history and art. This book is a fusion of two concepts: an artful, coffee-table lexicon of award-winning quilts, and a resourceful, knowledge guide structured to lead readers to their own wholecloth quilting success.

Karen's book features some of the country's best quilters, showcasing 60 award-winning Wholecloth, Trapunto, Appliqué and Pieced quilts. Never before has so complete a collection of wholecloth quilts been amassed.

The photography has been done by one of the country's premier quilt photographers. Images of the quilts fill the pages and include incredible, detailed shots. Viewing the quilt in person with a magnifying glass would not render better views of the stitching.

Karen's humor and quilting knowledge make the book a joy to read. In very little time you will understand the core concepts of creating your own heirloom wholecloth quilt.

We are striving to break the "Quilt book" mold. We are offering a book of art and practicality. We are making a book that will be comfortable on your coffee table or your work table. This is more than a quilt book; it is an expression of love for the beauty of art in cloth.

Nan Moore - Machine Freehand Patterns

Machine Freehand Patterns introduces a new concept in machine quilting called Faux Pantographs. While longarm machine quilters have traditionally used rolled patterns worked by tracing the line with a stylus or laser light, Faux Pantos are worked freehand using the quilt block itself as a guide. Nan's original designs start with simple meanders using basic leaves, simple flowers, and easy geometric shapes. Building upon these easy designs, this pattern book moves on to allover designs using one or multiple motifs, along with designs for sky, clouds, water, and leaves. Also included are a large variety of border designs from simple lace to rows of flowers to leafy swags and feather variations. Quilters seeking a more custom look for their quilts can combine any of the dozens of quilting patterns designed for specific blocks, setting triangles, and odd-shaped blocks.

Quilting Possibilities...Freehand Filler Patterns by Sue Patten

Collectors of quilting patterns are as intense as fabricaholics - they can never have enough! Here are three dozen traditional pieced blocks with full-sized worksheets that help identify the areas that need quilting. Multiply this by your choice of four different filler categories: flames, feathers, spheres, or swirls. Add additional filler patterns for cornerstones, sashing strips, and background quilting, and you have unlimited possibilities! This is not your regular pattern book to be followed line-for-line. Rather it explores unlimited quilting ideas and possibilities. Learn how to enhance the main motif by combining different background designs - curls, swirls, and other machine quilting staples - with the four basic fillers to complement the project. Whatever type of quilting system you utilize for machine quilting, freehand filler patterns provide the structure needed to hold the quilt together, to flatten the background area, or highlight the main patchwork or appliqué design.
