Description

It's not your grandmother's quilt world anymore. Quilting today is a phenomenally popular hobby, artform, and business, often rolled into one, that attracts 21 million avid quilters who spend $2.27 billion annually on their passion. There are 2,500 quilt shops around the country, popular television series, guilds, Web sites, and national fairs--one in Houston draws 50,000 visitors each year. Meg Cox, a former reporter for The Wall Street Journal , is one of the obsessive new quilters, and in The Quilter's Catalog , she draws on all her skills as a journalist to write the essential resource for contemporary quilters. Here's the low-down on tools: computer-driven sewing machines, innovative rotary cutters, longarms. New and old techniques, from how to dye your own fabric to cutting-edge digital photo-transfer. Profiles of the twenty top quilting teachers-- television's Alex Anderson, Esterita Austin and her award-winning landscape quilts, Ruth McDowell, known for her bravura technique. Who makes the best fabrics and how to find them. A complete resource guide to the best Web sites, online groups, books, patterns, stores, shows, challenges. And a look at the new world of quiltaholics: its sense of community, its opportunities for business, its controversies (hand-sewn vs. machine-sewn), its attractions--quilting is easy, portable, friendly, therapeutic, often profitable, and the perfect way to mark a milestone. The book includes 12 step-by-step projects from key teachers--a crib quilt, bed quilts, quilted ornaments--and instructions on how to hang, store, or ship a quilt.
