Cotton Theory quilting is a new and different way to construct quilts. It's backward. Fabric and batting pieces are quilted first and then assembled into reversible quilts using folding and topstitching techniques. This 152-page, full-color book contains 13 step-by-step projects, including placemats, table runners, wall hangings, throws, tote bags, baby quilts and bed quilts. Projects are designed for beginners as well as advanced quilters. Each chapter includes detailed illustrations.
