Infuse your quilts with love--how to add your personal story and more meaning to your handmade quilts.
Quilts are stories we compose with fabric and thread, providing physical and metaphorical warmth, and Wise Craft Quilts is about creating these stories. Whether making a quilt from baby's first clothes or from a collection of Tyvek race numbers stored away in a box, sewing pieces like these into quilt form creates a new level of appreciation for what they represent in your life and the lives of the ones you love. Each of the book's twenty-one quilts gathers a special collection of fabrics, outlines a new technique, spins a story, and showcases a stunning original quilt. Readers will be able to mix and match techniques and inspiration from different chapters to create their own unique project. It's the reference book they will refer to again and again.
