A one-patch quilt is simply a patchwork quilt made from a single repeating shape. This is the simplest type of quilt you can make, but with carefully chosen coordinating patterns and colors, the results can be stunning. Carolyn Forster has chosen beautiful, contemporary fabrics and a wide range of lovely shapes to make these simple quilts. All templates are provided at actual size and there are also design variations to show how diverse each quilt can look with different fabric patterns.
The book contains 20 projects, each using a different-shaped patch, for example, rectangles, hexagons, squares, triangles, diamonds, apple cores and so on, and showing different ways of using color. The quilts range from those based on a random selection of plain and patterned fabrics, to those that use just two or three different-colored plain fabrics stitched together to form an attractive geometric design.
Each project includes a template for the basic shape, reproduced at actual size, and the instructions for arranging the shapes and stitching them together. There is also guidance on how many shapes are needed to make a particular size of quilt.
There is a section at the beginning of the book on useful basic quilting techniques, including how to sew the pieces together and instructions that explain how to enlarge the template if you want to make a larger quilt.
These quilts are beautiful, relatively quick to sew and make fabulous gifts for family and friends.
