    This popular National Quilt Museum annual contest has taken flight once again! Annually, the museum sponsors a contest based on a traditional quilt pattern. The challenge to quiltmakers stems from the contest name—New Quilts From An Old Favorite. This year’s theme is the Flying Geese block. An exhibit of contest winners and finalists is held each year at the museum. This book is a collection of the most innovative quilts entered in the contest. Inside you will meet the quilters, discover their inspiration, and follow their techniques. You will see the color, the creativity, and the craft of a widely diverse group. Our hope is that the quilts will provide motivation for all quilters to consider their own interpretation of a traditional block to create a new quilt from an old favorite. OUT OF PRINT Learn More

    Say goodbye to the traditional way of making the Kaleidoscope block. No more cutting all those sharp-angled triangles that get eaten in your machine's throat plate. The smart way of piecing the traditional Kaleidoscope block uses a revolutionary template developed by author Sharon Sebrow. Whether creating a block with corners or without, even a beginner will have the same results an experienced quilter will enjoy when making a Kaleidoscope the Smart Way. Quilters will appreciate having 12 projects with clear instructions for both right and left hand template use. The book uses a number of layouts to demonstrate the versatility of this handy method: side by side, on point, framing fussy cuts, and more. Sharon Sebrow developed a unique template to encourage beginning quilting students to tackle this challenging block. An award-winning quilter, she continues to teach and inspire students of all ages and skill levels from her home in Teaneck, New Jersey. OUT OF PRINT

    Two left feet? No problem with this smooth technique. Partner up odd-shaped pieces to create a rhythm all your own. The combination of two simple geometric shapes produces 'dancer' segments, which align beautifully into lively quilt designs. Fabric contrast, placement of the piece on the background, tilt, and placement of the segment in the quilt provide endless variations on more than 10 projects. Several projects contain additional photographs to illustrate these variations. Get carried away with Debbie's spirited approach to quiltmaking in projects such as Sash Dance, Rock & Roll, and Electric Slide. Creating the segments in dancing quilts is fun, inventive, and unpredictable, making each quilt uniquely yours. Decorative stitches and threads can be used to energize the small pieces in the quilts. The nature of the technique allows you to work on small segments at one time rather than the whole quilt, giving you more freedom to experiment with these stitches. Detailed instructions and illustrations give you the confidence to step out on your own and create an original movement in fabric. OUT OF PRINT

    This exhibit catalogue chronicles the first-ever display in the United States of appliqué pieces made by several Tentmakers from Cairo, Egypt. The 95 works range in size from about 20 inches x 30 inches to 100 inches x 100 inches. Originally made to serve as interior decoration for the tents of sheiks and other tribal leaders, these beautiful appliqués are now used to decorate tents and modern buildings and rooms for special occasions such as weddings and funerals. Although constructed of three layers, they are not quilted per se; in the best work, no stitching shows through on the canvas backing.

    What quilter doesn't need a scrap-o-lator to deal with all her scraps? Dianne made four fabulous scrappy quilts but had barely made a dent in her scrap pile, so she decorated her table with a runner and reversible placemats. More scraps remained. She sewed a lamp shade. More scraps. She stopped sewing and started gluing. A rug, a mirror, a folding chair, another lamp, a mailbox, and one piggy bank later, she gave up trying to scrape the bottom of her scrap baskets and wrote this book. Now anyone can make these 13 scrap-o-lator projects. Out of Print Learn More

    Step away from the usual look of continuous line quilting designs into the natural world of a Danish artist with these extraordinary patterns. Drawing from such venues as the barn yard, a pond, the ocean, a forest, and a field of flowers, Lone brings flora and fauna to unusual life. Her birds and beasts can populate individual blocks or stretch along borders. They can be enlarged or reduced to create pantographs or the most intricate fill patterns. Each design was created for continuous machine quilting, but hand quilters will find these shapes beautifully adaptable. OUT OF PRINT Learn More
