Quilting Designs From Nature
Lone J. Minkkinen
AQS Publishing; $26.95
If you are looking for nature-inspired quilting designs that are not just florals, you will find this a terrific resource. Lone Minkkinen, a graphic designer and quiltmaker living in Michigan, drew many of the designs in this book while on holiday in her native Denmark. It includes more than 100 continuous line quilting design patterns. The designs are shown by group: the barn yard, the pond, the ocean, the forest, the dogs, the birds, the flowers, equestrian and dinosaurs, dragons and more. Some of my favorites were the frog on the lily pad, the lizard and the beetle. While Lone designed the patterns for continuous machine quilting, you can easily adapt them for hand quilting.
Look for the book at your favorite quilt shop or book retailer. Here’s a link to Amazon if you would like to learn more about the book.
