How do you match different fabric types together? How much backing fabric does a quilt need? Which fabrics are likely to cause allergies, run in the wash, pucker, or skip stitches? How do pattern styles work? What shapes complement one another? What are warm and cool colours and how do you pick accent colours from prints? Much more than just a book of designs and projects to follow, 'Quiltessential' is a quick-reference directory of fabric types, colour combinations, block settings, and piecing styles that shows you how to design your own quilting patterns from the limitless combinations on offer.
