Book Description

Preserve and honor history with 15 traditional blue-quilt patterns made from reproduction fabrics.

The blue-and-white quilt is one of the most desired antiques, and many can still be found in good condition. Learn the history of blue fabrics used during the 19th century, from the first production of indigo fabrics through the invention of the sewing machine, and up to the development of synthetic dyes in the late 1800s. Get inspired to design and create your own heirlooms, stitching up 15 historically accurate reproduction quilts from traditional blocks.

Quilts have a history and a tradition that can be brought up to date in contemporary style. Most quilts have a story, the quilts in this book hail from the American Civil War Years. The book is an education in quilt history, a lesson in bringing tradition into modern quilting and is also about all things blue. 

Blue is one of my favourite colours and you might be thinking blues and white or contemporary blue gradations, but think again. You'll find 15 wonderful reproduction quilts honouring an age-old tradition. The book helps you identify 19th century fabrics and discusses the designs. Sewing basics are included. The instructions are very clear and have excellent photographs and drawings.
