Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
Do you love Outlander? Do you have Scottish heritage? Learn to make modern, graphic quilts based on the woven patterns of traditional tartans of Scotland! Though the interweaving of tartan colors can be complex, the author has simplified the instructions for easy piecing. Simply cut strips, make strip sets, and subcut sections to make pieces that you can sew together to create rows. With a range of project types for each tartan, from runners and throws to bed-size quilts, there's something for every quilter. Includes patterns for clans Elliot, Maxwell, Maitland, Barclay, Hannay, Macrae of Conchra, and Fraser, and an original design, Amador, to honor the area where the author lives.
Includes bibliographical references (page 111).
