by Linda Seward
A revised and expanded edition of a long-standing classic, this expansive book is the clearest and most comprehensive handbook for applique, patchwork and quilting available. This seminal reference guide remains the go-to masterwork for crafters, who will find hundreds of patchwork, applique and quilting techniques explained clearly and simply. The techniques range from fundamentals such as cutting fabrics and hand sewing; to advanced special effects and complex techniques like eight-seam joins. All are explained through more than 1,000 step-by-step illustrations, patterns and templates. The techniques range from the traditional - including Amish quilting patterns and Seven-and-Nine-patch patchwork - to more unusual, like yo-yos. The book also contains glossaries of terms, making this perfect for both beginner and expert. Over 200,000 copies of the previous edition have been sold worldwide. Praise for The Complete Book of Patchwork, Quilting & Applique: "Linda Seward's book has been the essential volume on every quilter's bookshelf since its publication in 1987 and has never been bettered. This new edition updates the original techniques and embraces the current developments of the craft. Its place on that bookshelf is assured for many years to come." - Lynne Edwards MBE, quiltmaker and teacher "A definitive choice for the beginner and one worth investigating for a more experienced quilter" - British Patchwork & Quilting "This is an amazing book for those embarking on a quilting journey and even for seasoned quilters. The illustrations and directions are easy to understand and great for the visual learner. As a quilting teacher I would highly recommend this book. The number of techniques alone will keep the reader up at night! Rock on Linda Seward!" - Kim Rudd, quiltmaker and teacher "Linda Seward's guide has always been my go-to bible for every question I have about quilting. I didn't think a new edition could be any better, but this refresh is even more inspiring. Not only has she updated technical aspects (adding sections on fusible web applique and free-motion quilting, for example), she has chosen spectacular recent quilts to illustrate the text. While marvelling over them, I was reminded that quilting is an ever-evolving art that brings joy and satisfaction. Linda's book captures that perfectly, and leads us through how to do it ourselves." - Tracy Chevalier, novelist and quiltmaker
