The concept behind Quilt Big was to take Traditional Blocks, super size them and then design projects with these blocks that would make the Bigger blocks - faster finishes!
I have taken 22 Traditional Blocks and given them a modern makeover with the projects in this book. All beginner friendly as I walk you through how to make each block with simple directions, illustrations and photographs. There are then 17 projects for you to make with these blocks. No matter whether you are a beginner quilter or more advanced - you will love making these projects in next to no time. Choose from Quilts, Pillow or a Runner to make. The best part is that with the large Block sizes many of the projects are interchangeable simply by changing out a block of the same size for another. So the possibilities really are to you - use this book as a building tool to grow and develop your quilting skills.
When it comes to quilt blocks, bigger can be better and faster. In Quilt Big, I show you how to scale up classic blocks like the Log Cabin, Flying Geese, Indian Star, Home Treasure and more to create gorgeous quilts and projects for you home or loved ones that showcase your favourite fabrics and large scale prints.
Quilt Big really is all about maximum impact in minimal time. There is also a chapter on Quilt Backings. I really do believe that after all the thought, effort, time and love that goes into the making of a Quilt top, the back of your quilt also needs more than minimal attention. There are so many ways to make the back of your quilt just as striking as the front. In doing so you make your quilt design reversible so there is even more to love about your finished quilt. The backing of your Quilt is also a great place to use up some of the left-over pieces of fabrics from your quilt top - a great way to tie the two sides together and I give you several ideas on how to do this.
Not only are there larger projects to make such as Quilts but there are smaller style projects to make such as this Strip Pillow. Striking blocks can also be made in a short amount of time to create projects that are smaller in size. Pillows make great gifts to make, are a great way to learn a technique, will spruce up a spot on a bed or couch. Pillows are a great way also to use up scraps and leftover fabrics from quilt projects. You can then even make a matching pillow to a quilt project to completely finish off a project.
