In this easy-to-follow guide, Pat Holly and Sue Nickels share a host of striking designs inspired by antique Amish quilts. Their simple, step-by-step instructions show you how to use a sewing machine to quilt these elaborate patterns in just a fraction of the time it takes to sew them by hand. You'll find a treasury of stunning designs, including flowers, feathers, cables, baskets, stars, and more. Even those hard-to-fill spaces in between blocks and along quilt edges can be transformed with elegant sashing designs and attractive border decorations such as a grapevine and a running vine. You can use the patterns exactly as they are or easily adapt their sizes and shapes to fit your quilt perfectly. In addition, some of the patterns can be used for appliqué design. A short history of the Amish precedes a section on how to use the designs and a brief explanation of machine quilting. Most patterns are accompanied by simple directions for needlecrafters who enjoy the convenience and speed of quilting by machine but who can, if they wish, also create these heirloom-quality designs by hand.

The book shows you, step by step, all the details of making each kind of quilt: it covers choice of pattern, piece vs. patch quilting, simple and complex quilts, choice of quilt materials, interlining materials, lining and thread materials, cutting and piecing, the applique process, various methods of setting together, quilt sizes, borders, scallops, flounces, valances, straight line and close shell quilting, methods of stamping, perforated quilting patterns, quilting the quilt, putting into frames, quilting in a small space, embroidery quilts, and many other topics. The book is written in an entertaining manner. The author weaves a great deal of rosy humor into the lining of her instructions, as well as some interesting facts about the history of quilting, quilt materials, patterns, and some really choice folklore about the origin of the highly ingenious names of the patterns: "Monkey Wrench," "Road to California," "Lafayette Orange Peel," "Drunkard's Path," and "Crossed Canoes," to name a few. The book is not technical in any sense of the word. You can use it to make beautiful quilts provided only that you know the fundamentals of sewing.

Welsh quilts with their characteristic fabric choice, strikingly simple patchwork designs and decorative quilting patterns, have a rich tradition that inspired the Amish when the first Welsh settlers arrived in America. This inspirational new book the first of its kind from any major publisher, opens with a history of Welsh quilting followed by a gallery of ohotographs of Wales' quilt treasures. In depth information is given on selecting the right fabrics and colours, and basic equipment needed to create these quilts. The projects begin with five quilts, made by traditional hand piecing and hand quilting methods, and continue with five more made by modern rotary cutting and machine quilting techniques. A pattern library of traditional Welsh quilting pattern templates completes the book and shows how the patterns were originally drafted from cups and saucers and other everyday household items.
