Abstract:

Denyse Schmidt is one of the leading quilters of the 21st century. Known as a "modern" quilter, she actually draws much of her creative vision from quilts of the past. In Denyse Schmidt: Modern Quilts, Traditional Inspiration, Schmidt pays homage to the quilters and quilts that came before her. Each of the 20 traditional quilt designs she has reinterpreted here (among them are Irish Chain, Mariner's Compass, and Orange Peel, to name a few) is introduced with a lively overview of the pattern's history. Instructions are illustrated, templates are provided at full size on a pullout pattern sheet, and a complete techniques section is included at the back of the book.
