Quilt making has provided pleasure to countless needle workers for centuries, and the skills of patchwork, applique, and quilting have been handed down through generations in most of the world's cultures. Creating a beautiful quilt is a challenge and luckily, enormous numbers of quilt makers have risen to meet it. This book features several hundred quilted, appliqued, or pieced items that fall into the broad category of "quilt". The variety is immense, enough to whet the appetite and imagination of anyone interested in making - or just simply looking at - quilts.
