In A World of Quilts, Cassandra Ellis strips things back to this basic premise, sharing her love of cloth, colour and creating, while guiding the reader through the many different types of quilt they can make and the processes involved. The quilts vary in difficulty, quilting style, size and fabric choices, covering every skill needed to make a truly personal quilt. Drawing inspiration from 25 traditional quilt designs from around the world, Cassandra Ellis gives each quilt a unique and contemporary spin, whether that's through a different application of the basic block that makes up the design or through her combination of fabrics in colour palettes that appeal to a modern aesthetic. As the fascinating origin of each design is explored, it soon becomes apparent that the rich history of quilting in disparate cultures around the world exhibits a common theme - that of storytelling through the simple piecing of fabric and the shared process of creating. From English Piecing to Amish Sawtooth, Pojagi to Drunkard's Path, each of the stunning quilts is made using a time-honoured technique - freestyle, blocks, curves, triangles or applique. Cassandra guides you through every step, with advice on fabric choices, and cutting and piecing instructions accompanied by an easy-to-follow diagram and evocative photographs of the finished quilt. With a comprehensive technical section, 'Quilt Masterclass', A World of Quilts provides you with all the inspiration, encouragement and practical skills required to create an heirloom quilt.
