Collaborative Quilters Take on Tradition: Classic Designs Get a Freewheeling Twist from Gwen Marston & Freddy Moran by Freddy Moran, Gwen Marston

Published 2009

Award-winning authors Freddy Moran and Gwen Marston reunite for a follow-up to their successful Collaborative Quilting. This time the duo uses historical quilts for inspiration and collectively gives them their own modern interpretations. Separately, Gwen offers unique insights about historical formats, while Freddy imparts her extensive knowledge about color and pattern. Then the two join forces, often using well-recognized historical quilts as inspiration for new, bold, and modern interpretations. Each author shares 20 of her own creations, along with an additional 30 collaborative quilts—and every project comes complete with patterns for shapes, pieces and blocks.
