Quiltmania is proud to announce the release of Brigitte Giblin’s long-awaited book “Feathering the Nest 3 – With Quilts from Small to Grand ”!
In this new addition to her quilt opus, Brigitte has curated a selection of quilts varying from small to large, including a coverlet, samplers, an adorable vest for that special someone’s teddy bear, a dolly quilt, reticule and a chic doorstop. Brigitte’s style brings together her love of fabric and design in a unique way, and her attention to detail is a true delight, with her borders composed of pom poms or intricate crochet work. Combining her love of vintage quilts, bright and unexpected fabrics, and simplified shapes, her quilts have, what she likes to call, “a whimsical twist”. By incorporating patchwork fabrics, lightweight cottons, upholstery fabrics and vintage treasures to her work, Brigitte has fashioned a quilt style that fans around the globe can recognize in a heartbeat.
If you love all types of hexagons, Broderie Perse, Medallion quilts, Snowflake blocks and framed vignettes, then look no further! As an added bonus, her latest book is complete with a chapter on some of her go-to techniques: rotary cutting, machine and hand piecing, hand applique, two methods for mitering borders, and EPP. There could not be a more thorough quilting book out there! With 19 projects, carefully detailed and richly illustrated with color photos, there is simply a project for everyone!
