Quilt Style: Cool and Cozy Coverlets introduces a fabulous collection of quilts made in today's fresh colors and clean styles--from simple four-patch coverlets in washed-out English rose patterns to log cabin patterns in ice-cream colors. Featured are simple, pretty, and practical quilts of every size. These are quilts designed for guest beds and pull-out couches, as well as quilts for cribs, and single and queen-sized beds. There is even an "overnight wonder" made from new '40's style hankies and a fresh off-the-clothesline patchwork made from men's oxford cloth shirts. Keyed to our more relaxed lifestyle and the desire for simple pleasure, each quilt of the 18-quilt collection (plus an additional 18 variations) is photographed in a soothing home setting and accompanied by easy-to-follow directions and patterns, along with design tips and ideas for adapting each pattern to a new colorway or larger size. The work finishes with a veritable mini-course in quilting--"Basic Quilting", a sumptous Sources & Resources section and a comprehensive index.
