Best of Fons and Porter: Favorite Quilts

Front Cover
Marianne Fons and Liz Porter are the super stars of quilting, and this remarkable collector's edition presents 23 of their best personal quilts from issues of Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting magazine. Quilts include the spectacular Feathered Star that was the magazine's 2001 series quilt, a unique Spiderweb baby quilt, and a variety of Star, Log Cabin, Flying Geese, Civil War era, and other traditional patterns for all skill levels. There also are some quilts using batiks, novelty print fabrics, and other fun patterns. Each quilt is shown in a lifestyle photograph and an assembly diagram, accompanied by a complete materials list and step-by-step instructions. A 2009 Love of Quilting reader survey showed that 88% most enjoy making traditional quilts and that 97% look to books for project ideas and inspiration. These passionate readers have been following Marianne and Liz for more than 30 years-taking classes from them in the 1970s and '80s, watching them on public television in the '90s and still buying their magazine today.
