Beautiful Foundation-pieced Quilt BlocksBook - 1999
Ideal for beginners, foundation piecing is an easy quilting method that has you sew fabric pieces to a foundation, such as paper or fabric, in a numerical sequence. By following the step-by-step instructions included here, even a complete novice will be able to create any of dozens of beautiful blocks (all graded according to difficulty) that are shown in thirteen different quilts. The varied and charming designs include "Down by the Pond", featuring a whimsical Frog King and Queen; "Up North", in deep, woodsy colors; "Spring's Fancy", with birdhouse landscapes, ladybugs, and flowerpots; "Sugar and Spice", covered with diamonds, stars, and teddy bears; and "Tropical Delight", a pretty mix of pink lotus blossoms, summer roses, and sunbursts. Glorious full-color photographs illustrate a number of project possibilities, but the blocks can also be used to make quilts, bags, vests, pillows, and whatever else your imagination can dream up.
