Learn how to quilt while creating a sleek, stylish, contemporary sample quilt! A time-honored way to learn how to quilt is to make a sampler quilt. Each block or part of the quilt addresses a technique every quilter should have at their disposal. Traditionally, these quilts have same-sized blocks framed by sashings and cornerstones. Not anymore! Quilt teacher Marianne Hatton has compiled her experiences guiding beginning students into an all-in-one technique, design, and pattern book. Create unique quilts with a contemporary flair using her GridMap© technique while learning how to work with blocks of varying sizes. Monochromatic examples teach readers the importance of value and contrast without color getting in the way. Detailed instructions teach the basics of quiltmaking from straight to curved to set-in seams, appliqué, and borders. Color photographs illustrate techniques for hand or machine stitchers and a gallery of design possibilities.
