Colorful, Casual, & Comfy Quilts
Isn't it a wonderful feeling when you leave the cares of the world behind and head to the sewing machine to start a new quilt project? This collection of 22 beautiful, easy-to-make projects features all of the things a quilter loves-- memorable fabrics, inspiring designs, and the warmth and joy of filling a home with handmade quilts. Colorful, casual, and comfy are the orders of the day!
Choose from a wide variety of quilt projects to make, with everything from full-size quilts and lovely throws to small wall hangings and home accessories. Fabric lovers will also appreciate the rainbow of colors and textures featured in this collection. A classic Nine Patch block pattern gets a jolt from lively red fabric, and a traditional Pineapple block takes an asymmetrical twist when the block is stretched and reshaped with the aid of a computer. If brights light up your world, you'll discover a string-pieced block-and-appliqué combo sure to add excitement. Do pastels draw you in? Then you're sure to fall in love with the serene pillowcases accented with baskets and flower petals.

Complete step-by-step instructions, along with hundreds of how-to illustrations, ensure that you'll have success every step of the way. And with each finished quilt, you'll know that you're warming both heart and home.
