Quilt Makg/Ptchwk & AP

Michele Walker, Author Alfred A. Knopf $25 (192p) ISBN 978-0-394-55233-0
A founder of the British Quilters' Guild, Walker is well-known in England and abroad for her superior craft manuals, and this one is bound to stimulate the imagination of quilt fanciers who want to make their own patched beauties. Stunning color photos display the varied attractions of quilts in both traditional and contemporary designs, adapted and created by the author and her colleagues. Detailed illustrations also accompany Walker's clear instructions on every step of her project. Tips on caring for the handmade quilt are included. The vivid, modern designs have revolutionary sources; for instance, footprints and car tracks in snow have been impressed in white satin for posterity. Complete as the title claims, this could become the needleworker's favored reference. The only problem it poses to the tyro or veteran quilter is how to choose among the numerous, enticing patterns.
