The Embroidered Miniature Quilt (Paperback)Helen Marshall (author)
- We can order this
This fabulous new book features the techniques of quilting and embroidery to make an amazing mini quilt appealing to needleworkers and quilters both creatively and inspirationally!
Inspirations Books are proud to present the third single project book in the popular Designer Series - The Embroidered Miniature Quilt.
As one of New Zealand's leading patchworkers and embroiderers, Helen Marshall has created this breathtaking little quilt, measuring 52cm square. She has adapted the designs from historic Baltimore quilts to a much smaller scale. She has embroidered the nine blocks using some of her favourite embroidery techniques - such as stumpwork and ribbon embroidery - worked in a range of bold, beautiful colours.
As well as this, Helen has cleverly devised ways to imitate a multitude of fruits, flowers and vegetables to achieve a wonderful three-dimensional effect. The simple quilting design on the background and border complements the intricate embroidery.
Each of the nine designs is an easily achievable project and can stand on its own or easily be adapted to many other uses.
This extraordinary quilt incorporates over 25 stitches and raised embroidery techniques. 168 step-by-step photographs and detailed diagrams guide the reader every step of the way.
