Contemporary Monk's Cloth designs in full-color pattern book
Monk's Cloth for Today calls for traditional stitching to create a variety of projects -- from table runners to baby blankets and throws. Large close-up photos, step-by-step instructions and graphs make the projects easy to complete. There are nine patterns and a two-page general instructions section.
Trice Boerens is the designer of the book's projects. She has worked several years in the quilting, needlework and paper industries. Along with designing projects for best-selling books and kits, she has also worked as a photo stylist, art director and creative editor.
