Description
Though known as a "modern" quilter for her bold and simple motifs, stationery and fabric designer Denyse Schmidt actually draws much of her creative vision from quilts of the past. Here she pays homage to the quilters and quilts that came before her through 20 reinterpretations of traditional quilt designs—including Irish Chain, Mariner's Compass, and Orange Peel—each introduced with a lively overview of the pattern's history. Full-size templates are provided on pullout pattern sheets, as well as a section on basic quilting techniques.

"Denyse Schmidt's contemporary art quilts are things of enduring style and beauty, but few fans realize her 16-year career as a textile artist began when Schmidt fell in love with tried-and-true, centuries-old traditional quilt patterns.... Full-page photos of gorgeous quilts full of those bold geometric shapes that first inspired her provide ample motivation, while detailed instructions, a pull-out book of templates, and a section detailing tools and techniques offer plenty of how-to support, even for novice makers."—American Craft Magazine
