Sewing machines are speedier--but, increasingly, quilters are discovering that working by hand provides even more pleasure and superior results. And world-renowned quilt maker, teacher, author, and show judge Nancy Brenan Daniel has created an inspiring guide just for them, with ideas for 18 varied and beautiful hand-sewn quilts. Her detailed instructions cover it all, from making the blocks and stitching them together to adding borders and binding. Many of the designs come straight from Nancy's own antique collection, and they're pieced, appliqu#65533;d, and even stenciled. Several traditional and much loved patterns--including the Courthouse Log Cabin, Shoo-fly, Prickly Pear, and Windblown Daisy--are accompanied by a contemporary appliqu#65533; quilt and a small hand-embroidered wall hanging.
