Quilting a Poem
By Frances Kite and Debra Rowden
Kansas City Star Books

Quilting A Poem, Original Designs Inspired By America's Most Loved Poets is a most interesting book. Do you have some favorite poems you heard in your childhood, or in one of your college courses? They may be interpreted into a small quilt in this book by Frances Kite and Debra Rowen.

Frances and Debra collaborated on a book designed to be an inspiration, "a starting point, something quilter's can start with, then make their own designs and have fun with them. They don't have to make them exactly like this."

After a short description on a method of machine applique and paper piecing, the book covers 16 poems and their interpretation into quilt form. Ending the book are some patterns for borders and backgrounds, plus some variations and ideas on making other small quilts.

This is a beautifully illustrated and printed book containing quilts inspired by the beautiful poetry within its covers.

Look for this book at your favorite quilt shop!
