Elsie Svennas's beautiful and novel ideas for quilting - often combined with patchwork and applique - will be a revelation to those who always thought the limit of the technique was the traditional quilted bedspread. She uses quilting to make, patch, mend ana alter clothes, and to make accessories, toys, soft furnishings and, perhaps most excitingly, pictures and wall hangings. A wealth of drawings and photographs illustrate the techniques and show what can be achieved by experimenting with textures, incorporating cherished fragments of precious material or odd scraps, with ingenuity and innovation.

Although this is not a book for beginners, and many of these ideas need a considerable degree of skill, Elsie Svennas's enthusiasm and encouragement will certainly inspire you to explore this technique further.
