Dare To Be Square Quilting: A Block-By-Block Guide To Making Patchwork And Quilts

Boo Davis is a rock star! "Dare to Be Square Quilting" is the perfect patchwork primer for beginners and a refreshing review for experienced quilters. A must-have book for any quilt or craft library." --Denyse Schmidt (author of "Denyse Schmidt Quilts") . . . My approach to quilting is an approach for true beginners. I don't like triangles, circles, hexagons, diamonds, rhombuses, or any shape that makes measuring a chore. (Can we stop right here and ponder the word "rhombus"? Man, that word is hilarious.) In this book, every project is designed using only squares and rectangles. Why just squares and rectangles? Because straight seams are easy to stitch! Craft a modern quilt with independent quilt-maker Boo Davis, whose fun, slightly quirky designs take quilts into new graphic territory. Using only simple shapes like rectangles and squares you'll see robots, skulls, alarm clocks, and owls come to life as fabulous, full-size quilts. With 10 charming quilt patterns, and 15 eye-popping patchwork projects perfect for afternoon or weekend crafting, "Dare to Be Square Quilting" reinterprets quilt traditions such as basket weave, rail fence, and housetop designs in a bold new way. With advice on color and fabric selection, and an extensive how-to section on quilting, Davis teaches the fastest, simplest, and most reliable methods modern quilting has to offer. Dare to make a quilt that's funny, fabulous, and from the heart . . . Dare to be square!
