Quilting the New Classics
20 Inspired Quilt Projects: Traditional to Modern Designs
Regardless of where—or whether—quilters find themselves on the traditional-to-modern continuum, they all draw inspiration and creative vision from quilts of the past. In Quilting the New Classics, author Michele Muska presents the work of 20 influential quilters from across the creative spectrum.
Jacquie Gering, Darlene Zimmerman, Allison Aller, and Victoria Findlay Wolfe and more reinterpret 10 traditional quilt patterns. For each pattern—bear paw, crazy quilting, double wedding ring, dresden plate, flying geese, hexagon, log cabin, nine patch, rail fence, and yo-yos—are step-by-step instructions for two gorgeous designs, one a traditional interpretation, the other modern. Along the way, Quilting the New Classics also presents galleries of quilts both past and present, demonstrating how quilters can use visual inspiration to transform traditional patterns into unique quilt designs.
