The quilts may be small, but the design innovations are BIG! Each one of these mini-quilts measures less than 36" long by 36" wide, and features the most creative, detailed, and beautiful embellishments you’ve ever seen. Created by top-name quilters, and with spectacular images by an acclaimed quilt photographer, they showcase both traditional and contemporary techniques for personalizing your work: the quilts are adorned with beads and buttons, sequins and jewels, metallic cording, foil stamping, wire, photo transfers, fabric painting, seashells, and Cracker Jack prizes, as well as lovely ribbons, lace, and embroidery. Many of the projects have appeared in gallery collections, and the designers provide detailed instructions and materials lists so quilters can easily replicate the embellishments on their own pieces of art.
