Popular quilter and author Dorothy Stapleton is already well known for her log cabin houses; now she’s gathered these patterns together in one volume, and added all kinds of other landscapes and buildings too. You’ll discover how to create wonderful hills and fields, bridges and viaducts, boats and seaside scenes, abstract landscapes, and a range of fabulous designs from around the world.
The book is packed with full-colour photographs of Dorothy’s stitched examples and the patterns for creating them; you’ll find every kind of building from a bungalow to a skyscraper, and from an igloo to a pyramid.
Each section includes inspirational photographs of different buildings and scenes from many parts of the globe, plus examples of suitable fabrics for creating or varying the designs.
All the basic techniques are clearly explained, and illustrated with step-by-step diagrams. Throughout the book you’ll find helpful hints, and ideas for varying the projects. The final section contains tips for adding those all-important finishing touches – borders, bindings and embellishments – as well as a gallery of work created by other quilters using Dorothy’s patterns.
