Lover's Knot Quilt-Easy Strip Piecing
by Eleanor Burns
To celebrate her 30th anniversary and the marriage of her oldest son, Eleanor perfected the Lover's Knot pattern using her signature 2 1/2" strips. Add a touch of romance to any room with this lovely quilt. The elegant pattern uses two strips intertwined to make a "knot". The graceful, flow of the quilt is made with two basic, strip pieced blocks. By using color and value in your fabrics, the "Lover's Knots" stand out to show unity. The blocks are set "on point" for a dramatic effect and corners can either be squared or diagonal. Eleanor offers step by step illustrations and instructions to direct the quilter to a successful finish. There are yardage and cutting charts for all 5 quilt sizes and border options for a personalized quilt. Included with the Lovers Knot quilt pattern, Eleanor gives directions for making a matching dust ruffle with tips on measuring and sewing the ruffle. A miniature wallhanging and long and short table runners are bonus projects in the book. They are pieced with narrow 1 1/2" strips for a charming petite finish. Eleanor shares photographs of her son's wedding and a quilt made by the new Mrs. Burns.
