Named as one of the top books for 2017 by Library Journal, Wise Craft Quilts is about using special fabrics to make quilts with more meaning. Each of the 21 quilts featured in this book gathers a special collection of fabric, outlines a new quilting technique using them, and spins a new story around them. By using special fabrics as the starting point for each project- from a wedding dress to baby’s first clothes, worn denim, Tyvek race numbers, and more- the finished quilt is made even more special. Create quilts that have a story to tell and you’ll find a whole new level of appreciation for what they represent in your life and the lives of the ones you love.
