An exciting new title from the leading quilt author, Quilt Me! celebrates Jane 
Brocket’s liberated, joyous, colourful approach to quilting using wonderful 
fabrics and simple shapes and patterns to create stunning effects. 

Taking ‘inspirational fabrics’ as its starting point, the book explores not only the 
designs available in cotton, made-for-the-market quilt/patchwork fabrics, but 
also moves into a new realm of alternative fabrics that can be used to make 
beautiful, practical, usable quilts. It is as if a quilt-maker has walked into the 
haberdasher’s of her dreams and has explored the many possibilities that 
traditional fabrics offer, fabrics such as ticking, linen, gingham, tweed, tartan, 
suiting, shirting, velvet, silk and calico. 

With clear instructions for a fantastic variety of quilts, Quilt Me! recreates the 
excitement, known to all quilters, of rummaging through a new stash of fabrics. 
The author describes the joy to be found in a wonderful colour scheme, design 
or pattern, as well as the aesthetic and practical advantages of making the most 
of what we find in traditional fabric shops and in our textile heritage, finding 
alternatives to quilt cottons, and casting a new eye over fabrics made for other 
purposes such as clothes, curtains, upholstery and interior decoration.
