Quilting pattern book features quilts made from pre-cuts
With today's trend toward pre-cut fabric, the book's designs call for charms, the most popular of all pre-cuts. There are nine quilting projects, with instructions for both paper and traditional piecing in skill levels that range from confident beginner through advanced quilter.
Connie Kauffman is the designer of the book's projects. Her first book was published in 2001, and her quilt designs have appeared in more than 20 hardcover House of White Birches books. Her patterns are frequently featured in Quilter's World magazine.
Carolyn Vagts is the book's editor. She has more than 10 years of quilting experience, and her resume includes freelance designer, quilt store owner, writer and quilt-pattern proofer. Her freelance designs have been included in a number of magazines.
In the spring of 2011, Vagts was named editor of DRG's Quilter's World magazine, and her personal patterns are available through her store, The Village Quilt Shoppe, located in Lake Orion, Mich., and through DRG's Clotilde catalog.
Put Some Charm in Your Quilts is sold through the Clotilde catalog, accessible on the Web at Clotilde.com.
