Vintage Fabric Style: Stylish Ideas and Projects Using Quilts and Flea-market Finds in Your Home
Vintage fabrics are the latest trend, and who can resist them? Antique quilts, funky 1950s tablecloths, fine old linens, intriguing scraps of velvet and lace...there's more available than you know what to do with. Now Vintage Fabric Style presents chic ideas and projects that incorporate those fabrics into beautiful home accessories to help create your personal style. Blending their specialities, textiles expert Lucinda Ganderton and stylist Rose Hammick illustrate many projects, such as transforming an old piece of patchwork into country-style curtains, making a luxurious comforter cover from old damask napkins, and turning old family cast-offs into a sweet baby's quilt. Photographer Catherine Gratwicke utilizes her background in textile design to focus on each project both close-up and in its environment. Vintage Fabric Style is so inspirational, you'll run out of hand-me-downs before you run out of ideas.
