Bravo to our amazing Jane Brocket who has such a distinct personal flavour and shares with us ways to play with floral fabrics. I defy anyone who quilts, not to go running to a fabric shop and get stuck into a new project. Kaffe Fassett

Discover how to quilt and design with confidence
The Gentle Art of Quilt-Making is a charming, inspirational and practical collection of 15 quilts for would-be quilters by leading author Jane Brocket. There's a Russian Shawl Quilt, inspired by traditional motifs of Russian folk art, a Floral Frocks Quilt inspired by summer dresses, flower gardens and herbaceous borders and a Suits and Ties Quilt reusing sober woollen suiting contrasting with extravagant silk ties designed in an Irish Chain.
Finally, a practical section covers all the knowledge you'll need - from chain-piecing, hand-quilting and sandwiching to binding, storage and caring for your quilt. Armed with the design tools, you can embark on your quilting journey and begin creating your own personal masterpiece.
