Quilted New York

Does New York City thrill you, or someone you love? Gift them (or yourself) with a spectacular Manhattan view. This book shows how to stitch 11 structures inspired by some of the city's most iconic buildings. The buildings are mostly pieced, using a method for turning in raw edges as you go, developed specifically for the challenge of architectural shapes. Then each building is applique'd (or pieced) in place, anywhere you want it, by hand or machine.
Use these patterns to make something small, like a 1-building pillow or child's growth chart; or something larger, like the two wallhanging quilts in the book (One is about 60" square, and the other is about 70", but you have the ability to change those dimensions with your choice of background and border size.)
This book is for confident beginners and beyond, but even the most experienced quilters will learn from the unique piecing approach. The directions are very detailed, but they're also improvisation-friendly - you can choose to follow the book?s measurements, or do it your way.
Give your quilt a "modern" look by using mostly solids; or for added fun and texture, choose geometrics, including plaids. For a child's quilt, you can put fun figures cut from novelty fabrics in the windows.
8.5" x 11".
