Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Classic, yet somehow edgy, red and white is arguably the most iconic colour combination in quilting and every project in this book promises to give your quilting repertoire some high-contrast punch. Since the mid-19th century when color-fast red cotton became readily available for patchwork, red and white quilts have been one of, if not the most popular color combinations in quilting, inspiring designers, collectors and more than one major exhibition. This book celebrates that iconic design approach, providing quilters with patterns and instructions for some of the most magnificent red and white quilts in the International Quilt Study Collection. Linda Pumphrey, who worked with the study center on Mountain Mist Historical Quilts is back, this time creating both bed-sized quilts and quilt projects alike--pillows, runners, mini quilts and more--all inspired by these bold, historical yet timeless quilts. The book includes basic quilting and finishing instructions, tips on two-color quilting and working with "Turkey Red" and a CD-Rom of PDF quilt block templates, which includes paper piecing and rotary cutting where applicable. AUTHOR: Linda Pumphrey is an award winning quilter and quilt historian who also enjoyed a career in the quilting industry.

Library Journal Review

The classic combo of red and white takes center stage in this collection of blocks and quilts from master quiltmaker and quilt historian Pumphrey (Mountain Mist Historical Quilts). Most of the blocks are based on historic quilts from the 19th and early 20th century, when Turkey red fabric was popular among quilters-but there's nothing quaint or retro about the timeless designs, which include both intricate appliqué and bold geometrics. Familiar blocks such as Ohio star, snowball, and drunkard's path are presented alongside the more obscure such as princess feather and carpenter's square. Cutting and assembly directions are included, as are a series of quilt projects that can be created using the blocks in the book. VERDICT Classic and contemporary meet in this fine collection that will appeal to a variety of quilters. © Copyright 2018. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
