There's no better finishing touch for the angular beauties of a patchwork quilt than just the right patchwork border, specially scaled to complement the central design.
This comprehensive and invaluable reference book by talented needlework designer Elizabeth Nyhan shows how to add that splendid final statement to full-size quilts, decorative throws, eye-catching wall hangings, heirloom-quality gifts, and more. Twenty-one full-size patterns for 76 distinctive borders, including attractive combinations of triangles, rectangles, squares, and other geometric shapes, are all offered in five different sizes to provide the quilter with a wide choice of ornamental edgings.
Easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions and approximately 100 clearly diagrammed illustrations show quilters at all levels of expertise how to select appropriate patterns and incorporate them successfully into their own patchwork quilt designs.
