"Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned expert in quilting, this all-in-one encyclopedia of quilting explains every process and answers every technical question you might have about patchwork, quilting and appliquâe through more than a thousand step-by-step pictures. A peerless reference book, this new edition brings classic inspiration to a whole new generation"-





Linda Seward is an experienced quilter, writer and quilt judge. She has written 11 quilting books, including The Complete Book of Patchwork, Quilting & Appliqué, which has been in print for 27 years, selling over a quarter of a million copies in several languages. In 2014 she published The Ultimate Guide to Art Quilting, which is already in its second printing. Linda has also written books on babies, puppies, knitting and crocheting (the knitting and crocheting books are published under her maiden name, Linda Macho). She has been writing a regular column in The Quilter magazine for 12 years. Linda has appeared on television and radio shows, and has judged numerous quilt shows around the world. She was born in New Jersey, but has lived in London, England for the past 30 years.





This revised edition of a classic quilters' reference guide will be a welcome update for many readers, especially as the previous edition is out of print. This revision adds newer techniques to the original content and includes updates to the text and photographs to reflect current practices and works by contemporary quilt artists. Originally devised to be a one-stop reference book for those wishing to learn all the basics of quilting, this book still meets that purpose, covering fundamental techniques, patchwork, appliqué, quilting, and construction of quilts and other items using quilted textiles. The one great disappointment with this update is that nearly all the featured quilt artists are white, an appalling missed opportunity to showcase the robust community of Black, Indigenous, and quilt artists of color working today. Filled with diagrams, illustrations, and templates, in addition to explanatory background information and instructions for hundreds of techniques, the book packs a huge amount of information into just over 200 pages, making it still a prime reference for public-library collections.
