Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Marston and Cunningham feel quilting (as well as the quilt itself) should be taken seriously. These experienced quilters, authors of many books on quilt making, noticed the lack of information on planning and designing the cable, fan, feather, and other techniques that so wonderfully complete and enhance any quilt. Over 76 color photos show traditional quilts, often made by the authors, along with samples of early quilts. Full-size figures can be copied or traced. This important resource will be popular with those who still want to do their work in an original and traditional manner. A fine resource for active craft collections. Iva Freeman

From one hand quilter to another, "Quilting With Style" by Gwen Marston and Joe Cunningham is fantastic! It's concise, down to earth, and LOTS of information on the actual hand quilting Designs! It's about time!! They emphasis the importance of the quilting being as beautiful as the piecing or applique of the top itself. What brings a quilt 'to life' and how to choose your designs to accent your quilt top. It's a MUST READ! Karen Bush, Professional Hand Quilter

From page one the reader is engaged in the creative process that brings us to the 'look' of quilts that has evaded us. Not only does Ms. Marston identify the character of quilting that has drawn so many of us to the art and, until now, been miising from our quilts.....she invites us into and through the process. Amazingly simple techniques are reviewed and once implemented, make 'nice' quilts.....'remarkable' quilts. This one is for any quilter out there who's quilts need "something" or is contemplating their first heirloom quilt. It has redefined my craft and creativity.

I hesitated about purchasing this book even though it has been listed in the source section of several other books I own. Now, I wish I had bought sooner. It is a wonderful guide for quilting designs. It doesn't tell you how to piece a top for a quilt, but rather what to do with it when you have finished the top. Should be in everyone's quilting library.

Concentrates on the QUILTING, and pre-dates the widespread use of machine quilting, but there is a lot to learn here.

I find his book a great source of ideas as I face my first queen size quilt top, knowing I want to hand quilt it with a varied pattern (afraid of getting bored by too much repetition). It's a great help in designing your own patterns, without having to buy templates.

Anything by Gwen Marston is a keeper. Being a hand quilter I refer to this book all the time. Great ideas and easy to understand and follow.
