Frayed-edge Fun: 10 Cozy Quilts
Why hide fabric edges on the inside of quilts when you can showcase them on the outside? Using "seams out" patchwork and raw-edge appliqué, these quilts burst at the seams with incredible texture. Plus, they become softer and cuddlier with every wash! Ten "have-to-touch!" projects give an entirely new richness and dimension to traditional quilts. Easy techniques include clipping edges for fuzzy trims and stitching appliqués to a wholecloth background-a quick wash and dry is all it takes to make them fray. With choices ranging from a masculine throw to a snuggly baby quilt, every quilter will find a "seams-out" quilt they can't wait to create.
