Stuart Hillard is on a mission to help quilters all over the world realize their quilting dreams and prove it ain t what you do, it s the way that you do it one simple shape at a time. In the follow-up title to the bestselling Use Scraps, Sew Blocks, Make 100 Quilts, Stuart shows you how the easiest of shapes can make extraordinary quilts. The book is divided into five main pattern chapters:

  • One-Patch Quilts 20 quilts using a single, repeated shape.
  • Strips and Squares 20 quilts that turn strips and squares into a tessellated triumph.
  • Triangles 20 quilts using half, square triangles, half rectangles and equilateral triangles.
  • Curves 20 quilts that show off your curves.
  • Foundation Piecing 20 quilts to create unique blocks from the easiest shapes using paper foundation piecing.

Simple Shapes Stunning Quilts teaches you the basics of quilt design; this book is packed full of pattern blocks that use the simplest shapes in order to build up your quilt. Each of the 100 blocks can be used to make one of Stuart s quilt designs. Alternatively, quilters can adapt any of the pattern blocks; they can personalize treatments, colours and arrangements, add extra borders, and more. Making your own design is as easy as 1, 2, 3;

1. Select a simple shape to work with.
2. Sew the shapes together to make the pattern block.
3. Repeat the block to build up the full, stunning quilt.

Alongside the patterns, and quilt design, Stuart has drawn on years of teaching experience to include the ultimate quilting hacks, tips and tricks, as well as his rules for successful quilting. The techniques chapter cover basic skills, design skills, cutting skills, paper piecing, easy appliqué techniques and advice on how to add border and binding with the help of step-by-step photographs. This book is perfect for beginners attempting their first quilt, and experienced quilters looking for new inspiration. Stuart s designs and irresistible enthusiasm reveal the power of simple shapes and will inspire you to make spectacular quilts your way.
