Summary

Create 9 stunning quilts and 11 desirable gifts using contemporary big-stitch quilting

Hand quilting using big stitches has its roots in utility quilting, from Gee's Bend quilting in the US, to Japanese sashiko and boro through to Indian kantha stitching. Drawing on these traditional techniques, Carolyn Forster brings big stitch quilting right up to date and shows you how to create 9 gorgeous quilts as well as 11 gift projects that include a zokin tea towel, a wrapping cloth, a Japanese knot bag, a pillow cover and coasters.

There is a comprehensive techniques section at the start of the book that explores the kinds of materials and fabrics best suited to big stitch quilting, the stitches and methods used, and how to assemble and finish your quilts, making this an invaluable resource for anyone interested in this stunning form of hand quilting.
