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.

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.
