Description


Here's an exceptional book that provides needleworkers with eye-catching patchwork projects that work up fast and easy. Veteran quilt designers and teachers Gwen Marston and Joe Cunningham have created 20 attractive little quilts that are perfect for experimenting with color and design. Considerably less intimidating than full-size quilts, these "quiltlets" -- ranging in size from 131/2 x 171/2 inches to 18 x 22 inches -- make ideal doll bed covers of lovely wall hangings. The 35 full-size templates help create a variety of captivating designs, including Tree Everlasting, Dutchman's Puzzle, Propeller, Broken Dishes, Houses, Bow Tie, Jacob's Ladder, The Girls, Gwen's Tulip, Sugar Bowl, and ten other charming patterns.
Complete step-by-step instructions, amply enhanced with approximately 95 black-and-white illustrations, enable quilters at all levels to create a variety of colorful items that will be a pleasure to make and a joy to use.

New Hope for American Art was authored, designed and published by James M. Alterman, an expert in the field of Pennsylvania Impressionist and Modernist painting. A longtime collector and owner of two fine art galleries, Alterman wanted to create a user-friendly book intended not only to educate collectors and enthusiasts about this art but to help train one's eye. The book offers valuable tips on how to avoid common mistakes often experienced by new collectors drawn from the author's personal experiences as a collector and fine art dealer.
