by Phyllis D. Miller

'It's not a quilt until it's quilted' and 'How do I quilt it?' are two statements often heard among quilting enthusiasts and quiltmakers. The ENCYCLOPEDIA OF DESIGNS FOR QUILTING by Phyllis D. Miller is the first comprehensive reference of traditional quilting designs. Quiltmakers, quilt documentors, and historians/researchers will find this book a valuable tool. Phyllis documented 375 traditional quilting designs from texts and quilt collections. For quiltmakers, the front section of the book is a how-to guide with over 500 illustrations for drawing and transferring traditional designs onto quilt tops. Some of the diagrams are: straight lines, geometrics and triangles; squares and circles; diagonals and diamonds; ovals, crescents, and curves; ropes and cables; hearts and feathers; and representational, naturalistic, designs taken from a quilt pattern, and combination designs. In the back section, the Numerical Index has numbers assigned to the designs for easy documentation and reference. Phyllis's quilt designs have helped her win numerous awards in quilt competitions. You'll find the tools in the ENCYCLOPEDIA FOR DESIGNS FOR QUILTING will help you create your own designs and make your quilts ribbon winners, too!

This is an excellent "how-to" on just about everything pertaining to quilting designs. Instructions are illustrated and written not just on how to draft the design/s - but how to mark your quilt with the design - suggestions on where they might fit appropriately on your particular quilt top. She gives you a listing of the tools you will need to do each particular design, helpful hints, and much more. The variety of designs ranges from the common to the more unusual. The manual also includes a numerical listing of the quilt designs using a numbering system similar to the one used by Barbara BBrackman in her "Encyclopedia of Applique." If you only plan on purchasing one book of quilting designs you can't go wrong with this one!
Highly recommend!
Too complicated for my simple brain..
I T thought it would be a book I could use to help me identify different quilt designs. It is a very good reference for various stitching patterns, but not the quilt tops I was looking for My mistake.
Would have been better in color.
