If you are a quilter looking to break free of the traditional mold of quilting, Denyse Schmidt’s latest book “modern Quilts, Traditional Inspiration” is your ticket to freedom. Drawing her inspiration from quilts of the past, Schmidt pays homage to the rich tradition of quilting with 20 gorgeous reinterpretations of traditional quilt designs, including Irish Chain, Mariners’ Compass, and Orange Peel.
Each quilt is accompanied by an overview of the pattern’s history, illustrated instructions, and a full-size template provided on a pull-out pattern sheet. A comprehensive guide of quilting techniques is included for quick reference at the back of the book.
Denyse Schmidt: Modern Quilts, Traditional Inspiration is available on Amazon.com.
