Sunny Days

A Summertime Quilt Full of Folk-Art Fun

Jan Patek

Celebrate summer with a sampler quilt chock-full of the season’s charms! Make 14 cute block designs featuring trees and houses, a chicken and flowers, birds and vines, baskets, bee skeps, and more. At queen size, this fanciful folk-art quilt can be showcased anywhere–on a wall, over a couch, or on a summer bed.

Use Jan’s needle-turn technique, or any favorite appliqué method, to make the blocks. For quick coordinating projects, turn single blocks into pillows, wall quilts, table toppers, and more. Full-sized patterns included.

Sisterhood of Scraps

Lissa Alexander

Start a quilting bee, build a community, and bring new sisters into the fold as you make these stunning projects. Inside you’ll find your Sisterhood of Scraps certificate–hang it in your sewing space to show that you’re a proud member of the Sisterhood of Scraps.

Treasure Hunt

13 Quilts Inspired by Antique Finds

Linda Collins and Leah Zieber

The hunt is on! Follow a team of antique-quilt mavens as they share how their search for quilts from the past turned into present-day quilt patterns. With decades of knowledge about vintage textiles between them, the authors present:

  • Patterns for 13 stunning quilts, each inspired by an antique quilt from the authors’ personal collections
  • Tips for finding antique quilts, both in your hometown and online
  • Which quilts to snap up quickly–and which to walk away from
  • How to determine if the price is right

Packed with photos of both newly made quilts (and the patterns to make them) plus images of the antique quilts that inspired them, the book shows this duo’s treasure hunting in action. Linda and Leah will inspire you to join the hunt!
