But like many quilters of different generations, their expressions of the craft take decidedly different forms. Karen favors the classic beauty of traditional and antique quilts, relishing every step of the process. Daughter Erin, on the other hand, loves the fresh look of contemporary-style projects that can be quickly constructed.
With their shared passion for quilting, Karen and Erin take on five different design challenges—each creating their own unique version of pieced basket quilts, quilts from one block design, quick quilts with a twist, appliqué quilts, and six-sided designs such as hexagons and snowball blocks.
Whether you love quilts reminiscent of bygone days or those with a more modern flair, there’s something for every generation in this book of 10 diverse projects. You’ll find everything from an exquisite hexagon quilt inspired by antique mosaic quilts to a stylish appliqué wall hanging dressed in trendy high-heeled shoe silhouettes and fashion fabrics.
Karen and Erin also share their techniques for documenting your quilts with creative labels using designs from your quilt, rubber stamps, and digital photographs.
