It's easy to turn traditional quilt blocks into Cotton Theory quilts! Betty Cotton's Quilt First--Then Assemble techniques let you quilt layered blocks individually on your sewing machine and then assemble them into completely finished, reversible quilts. Create stunning, one-of-a-kind treasures that combine traditional blocks, machine quilting, and embroidery, if you choose. Step-by-step instructions and color illustrations are provided for 14 projects. Batting is added to blocks as you sew, so there's no need to add batting later. You can complete entire reversible quilts on your sewing machine!
