Elegant Embroidered Quilts

with Amanda Murphy
Elegant Embroidered Quilts
Combine stunning piecing with marvelous embroidery motifs to create three fine quilts and three fun, smaller projects.

When beautiful embroidery motifs are stitched into the fabric of your piecing, so too are your style and skill! Let quilt and fabric designer Amanda Murphy help you choose colors, fabrics and the right stabilizer for fabulous results. Plus, learn to make three quick projects—two pillows and a table runner—that each lead into their own quilt. You'll create the North Star quilt, where gorgeous embroidered stars extend into pieced points at the middle of each block. Then take a stroll with the Garden Walk quilt, where vibrant embroidered flowers grow between columns of kaleidoscope blocks. And be sure to bask in the Radiance quilt, with its centered embroidery motifs, partial Dresdens and set-in triangles.
