Summary

Summary

Vintage-Style Quilts , from Creative Arts & Crafts, shows the reader how to use both vintage fabrics and new fabrics to re-create an old world look in quilting designs. Whether choosing a vintage washed flax, a faded floral cotton, or a contemporary damask, old and new fabrics can be used separately or in tandem to achieve comforting quilt patterns. The combination of muted colors, soft feel of vintage fabrics, and classic designs help the reader create decorating magic, whether sewing by hand or by machine.
