One of the biggest questions facing any quilter is to decide what stitch pattern to use. With over 500 pages containing over 1,000 motifs, this book provides all the inspiration you'll ever need. Key techniques show how to translate designs to fabric: drawing round a card template, stitching through a trace outline and cutting templates out of stencil plastic. The designs – from traditional, modern and heirloom to easy-to-follow geometric designs – are quick and easy and can be worked on a machine, by hand or by a combination of both. The material is organised by theme, so it’s easy to find a pattern to suit every style of quilt. Where appropriate, Luise shows where to position figurative designs in circular, square or triangular blocks to create the best effect, and for each design she explains how each example can be repeated and the percentage to enlarge the patterns. All stitch designs as are required to satisfy the most avid enthusiast. This extensive collection is divided into chapters ranging from traditional quilting patterns such as triangles, squares, stars, hearts, pictoral motifs and regional designs including Celtic, Indian, Chinese and Polynesian. This is further enhanced by a techniques chapter exploring useful transfering and quilting assembly techniques, along with information on the quilting process from start to finish. Very few books offer this many choices of patterns, but this indispensable volume will satisfy the most avid and discerning enthusiasts.

1 000 Recordings To Hear Before You Die

The musical adventure of a lifetime. The most exciting book on music in years. A book of treasure, a book of discovery, a book to open your ears to new worlds of pleasure. Doing for music what Patricia Schultz—author of the phenomenal 1,000 Places to See Before You Die—does for travel, Tom Moon recommends 1,000 recordings guaranteed to give listeners the joy, the mystery, the revelation, the sheer fun of great music. This is a book both broad and deep, drawing from the diverse worlds of classical, jazz, rock, pop, blues, country, folk, musicals, hip-hop, world, opera, soundtracks, and more. It's arranged alphabetically by artist to create the kind of unexpected juxtapositions that break down genre bias and broaden listeners’ horizons— it makes every listener a seeker, actively pursuing new artists and new sounds, and reconfirming the greatness of the classics. Flanking J. S. Bach and his six entries, for example, are the little-known R&B singer Baby Huey and the '80s Rastafarian hard-core punk band Bad Brains. Farther down the list: The Band, Samuel Barber, Cecelia Bartoli, Count Basie, and Afropop star Waldemer Bastos. Each entry is passionately written, with expert listening notes, fascinating anecdotes, and the occasional perfect quote—"Your collection could be filled with nothing but music from Ray Charles," said Tom Waits, "and you'd have a completely balanced diet." Every entry identifies key tracks, additional works by the artist, and where to go next. And in the back, indexes and playlists for different moods and occasions.

The central theme of Curricular Conversations is this: Play is the thing that brings aesthetic curricular complications near educators and their students, making the lived consequences very vivid, tangible, and possible. Viewing curriculum as genuine inquiry into what is worth knowing, rather than simply a curricular document, this book explores the significances instilled and nurtured through aesthetic play. Each chapter delves into the space a given artwork reveals. The artworks act as points of departure and/or generative vehicles, foregrounding the roles and possibilities of play within curricular conversations. Looking at relevant educational issues, traditions, and theorists through an illuminating lens, this book speaks to curriculum theorists and arts educators everywhere.
