"Quilt Adventures in the Land of Cotton" is a charming pattern collection for the sewing room and a delightfully browsable book for lazy afternoons on the porch. Jodie Davis presents 12 adorable quilting and home-dec projects inspired by the traditions, hospitality, and pure warmth of the cotton-growing states. The star project is a wonderful ten-block "Farm Sampler" quilt that evokes the gentle rhythms of life on a southern farm. A pretty and colourful mix of pillows, wall hangings, and pieced and appliqued quilts provides for fun and easy sewing. A primer on quilting skills provides all the help beginners need - including quick-sew techniques like rotary cutting, strip piecing, fusing, raw-edge applique, and more. This work includes: 12 quilt and home-decor projects, with hand-drawings and step-by-step directions; 6 lush and beautiful watercolour and oil paintings, plus 25 spot art watercolours; and a sprinkling of mementoes, mottos, and delicious recipes.
