Quilts from the Colonies is my very own book, beautifully photographed and  styled by the team at Quiltmania publications.

There are 17 projects for you to enjoy, each inspired by quilts from the States which were the first 13 British colonies in America.  As well I have added a couple of special quilts from New Zealand’s colonial past.

Applique and pieced quilts are included, along with full sized templates.  There’s everything you’ve come to expect and love from Quiltmania’s unique styling.
