Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting

Description

Segments from the series include two quilts that feature a diagonally set log cabin design, a small quilt constructed with English paper piecing, a breakdown of a medallion-style quilt into simple lessons, and how to resize a quilt block into larger and smaller versions.
