Sewing machines are speedier--but, increasingly, quilters are discovering that working by hand provides even more pleasure and superior results. And world-renowned quilt maker, teacher, author, and show judge Nancy Brenan Daniel has created an inspiring guide just for them, with ideas for 18 varied and beautiful hand-sewn quilts. Her detailed instructions cover it all, from making the blocks and stitching them together to adding borders and binding. Many of the designs come straight from Nancya€™s own antique collection, and theya€™re pieced, appliquAcd, and even stenciled. Several traditional and much loved patterns--including the Courthouse Log Cabin, Shoo-fly, Prickly Pear, and Windblown Daisy--are accompanied by a contemporary appliquAc quilt and a small hand-embroidered wall hanging.Provincial Star patterns (page 121) Heart Quilting Designs (page 121) Note: Make templates for the pieced star and label A, B, C, and D. ...
