Quilting, Patchwork and Applique
Sorry, this item is now out of stock.
Covering a vast range of textiles, this is a worldwide survey of the ancient and very varied traditions of quilting, patchwork and applique. A source of inspiration for anyone working in these crafts today, the book is full of fascinating examples such as the appliqued uniforms of the Mahdi's followers, pojagi wrapping cloths from Korea, and English 19th-century quilted bonnets. The guide is in three parts - materials, uses, construction - and covers over 50 topics, with some 500 illustrations.
