American Quilt Classics from the Collection of Patricia Cox

Front Cover
Collins & Brown, 2004 - Crafts & Hobbies - 192 pages
Showcased here for the first time, Patricia Cox's breathtaking, internationally renowned collection spans the history of the American quilt-and quilters are invited to recreate the finest examples. Each project features the work of a different period or style; comes with templates, technical information, and historical background; and uses modern-day fabrics. A lovely hand-appliquéd Mexican Rose block, originally from the mid-19th century, offers needleworkers a beautiful challenge. Log Cabin is the quintessential patchwork pattern: though it's easily constructed, the potential variations on the theme are endless. The one here is machine-pieced, with a quite unusual chevron design. Other quilts include the Irish Chain, Triangles, Stars, Four-Patch and Nine-Patch, and Baskets--and every one is inspiring and unique.
