Stitches of Time - Deborah Dorward
Quiltmania says it is truly an honor to publish a quilt designer’s very first book and Deborah Dorward’s, “Stitches of Time”, is no exception! Imagine yourself in a lush landscape where both flora and fauna abound. Birds (Deborah’s absolute favorite), deer, floral arrangements, wreaths, or pomegranates are featured in her book, using both appliqué and Broderie Perse. Deborah’s love of antique fabrics shines through with her playful use of tradition and color, meticulously thought out for each quilt. Her compositions are designed around some of our favorite classics like Baskets, Medallions, Dresden Plates, the Ohio Star, Whig Rose, and the Mariner’s Compass. To compliment a few of the 11 quilt projects, carefully detailed with full pattern instructions and photos, Deborah has added 3 delightful cushions to accessorize your home. She has included a technical chapter to help you with her go-to techniques – foundation and curved piecing, needle turn and reverse appliqué, hand piecing and quilting, and much more!
