These fifteen projects teach three of the most basic quilting techniques: patchwork piecing, foundation piecing, and applique. Readers learn how to "deconstruct" their favorite garments and then reconstruct the pieces to form the small individual blocks that are stitched together to form a quilt. Block by block, they'll learn how to make quilt tops and "sandwiches," and then decoratively stitch their surfaces by machine, with straight lines or freeform shapes. They'll also learn how to assemble blocks to make three full sampler quilts, adding sashing, binding, and designer labels.
