After the success of her first book, “Quilts From the Colonies”, Margaret Mew is back with a more personal quilt story where her love of fabrics takes center stage! Learn all about choosing fabrics for your applique backgrounds, for stems, fabrics that blur the edges, print essentials, and how to curate a selection of your personal favorites. Margaret also walks us through her creative space, an adorable cottage, with valuable storage tips. Her love of antique quilts is beautifully translated into original reproductions of her own design, adding a light and fun twist to every single project. Inside this richly illustrated book, you will find an array of Medallion quilts where applique and Broderie Perse abound, a coverlet (for those hot summer nights), the perfect drawstring bag for sewers, a bed footer, and a tea cozy (for those cold winter nights). Every project is fully detailed with full-size patterns, and the book is set in a sumptuous, French country home ... one of Margaret’s favorite places! With projects ranging from beginner to advanced, this is a truly complete quilt book.
