Stitch the charms of a country cottage into every quilt you create! Designer Brenda Riddle, known for her use of fresh florals and sweet pastels, gathers her all-time favorite patterns to share with you in this beautifully photographed volume. A pretty, airy palette of pale pinks, pearly whites, and soft blues, greens, and grays provides a restful backdrop for 13 classic patchwork quilts, several embellished with wisps of enchanting appliqué. Projects are displayed in beautiful cottage-style settings that will inspire quilters to breathe a little romance into any space, greeting you with a "welcome home."
After a professional life centered on interior design and the architectural field, Brenda put her skills to work teaching art and design to high school students. Switching gears to indulge her love of sewing, Brenda launched Acorn Quilt & Gift Company, creating and selling patterns for quilts. Later she expanded to add embroidery, counted cross-stitch, and punchneedle patterns under the umbrella of Brenda Riddle Designs. A longtime fabric designer for Moda, she enjoys coming up with new fabric collections that exhibit her trademark vintage feel--and putting those fabrics to use in beautiful quilts.Contact Brenda Riddle
