Welcome to the world of Cotton Theory quilting, where you ll find quilted embroidery, three-dimensional finished seams and a whole new way to quilt. Every quilt is reversible. Unlike traditional quilts, which are pieced together, layered with batting and then quilted, Cotton Theory projects are quilted first, one segment at a time, and then assembled into finished quilts using Betty Cotton s sewing, folding, and top-stitching techniques. This book includes step-by-step instructions and illustrations for 13 eye-catching projects, including placemats, table toppers, table runners, wall hangings, a tote bag, a bath mat, and various quilts. This is Book One in the Cotton Theory Series.
