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 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.
