Modern quilters and paper piecers alike will love this new way to make a statement in a quilt. Fiber artist and quilt designer Sam Hunter teaches quilters how to really get a message across with 12 new projects featuring modern, paper-pieced text blocks. Sam covers everything quilters need to know about paper piecing, choosing fabrics, and designing their own quilted words. They can use Sam's designs to get started and then take the next step to add quilted text to any project. For sewists who already have basic quilting skills.
* Quilters can speak their minds with 12 complete quilted projects, featuring paper-pieced text blocks
* Words come through loud and clear in an easy-to-read, modern font with lower- and uppercase letters, numbers, and symbols
* Machine-sewn paper piecing is faster and easier than sewing letters to a quilt with hand applique
* Pattern pullouts included

Sam Hunter has written a book about using the alphabet to make text-based quilts and gives

you 12 projects to try out the technique for yourselves. One alphabet is used for this book and resized for the different projects. Paper Piecing is the method used for putting together the letters and the description of the basic technique is well-explained and illustrated. A consideration of how to work upper and lower case letters is also included, and this is very helpful. The projects are fun and modern and are divided into different categories - celebration, communication inspiration and decoration. You can see with these (as featured on the cover) that a lot of fun can be had with putting the lettering together and adapting them to suit your purpose. The basic instructions on how to go about lettering in quilts is very clear and easily taken outside the book for your own projects.
