Heirloom Quilt

This is an exquisite publication.  A true heirloom quilt, with beautiful photographs and exceptionally clear instructions.

The main project is sumptuous - made from subtle shades of silk fabric, with a gorgeous array of embellishments - particularly its range of embroidery stitches.  It can be made by hand or machine.  If the latter, then quite a range of different 'feet' are required.

It also contains several bonus projects, - all heirloom embroidery - such as a bolster cover and this gorgeous cushion cover.

I've got as far as buying all the necessary machining feet for this VSP (Very Special Project), but haven't yet got the fabric together for it.  I think I'll probably do a practice one first, with cotton, rather than risk ruining silk.  Hopefully, the real one will then be a doodle!
