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.

Colorful, Casual, and Comfy Quilts offers doable projects for beginners and experts alike. 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.
