Geometric Patterns from Patchwork Quilts
This book illustrates and demonstrates how geometrical patterns lie at the heart of so many wonderful designs for patchwork quilts.
Idoes not set out to be a guide on how to make a quilt or to be a handbook of quilting or patchwork techniques. Nor is it a history of quilting. But it is a qonderful repository of ideas for future quilting.
Thanks to the generosity of many quilt makers, photographs of a wealth of beautiful examples have been included. They show, as do a multitude of line drawings, how the application of sound geometrical principles can open doors to wonderful and imaginative designs.
Robert Field has travelled extensively and has taken his camera and a keen eye with him wherever he has gone. Many people will be both surprised and delighted by the sheer number and variety of interesting patterns that he has discovered. The 5 Geometric Patterns books will appeal both to those who have a particular interest in the topic covered but also to those who are looking for a rich resource of pattern designs.
