Soft-Edge Piecing book.

Soft-Edge Piecing book.

In traditional patchwork designs, fabric is cut to fit within the various shapes of the block pieces. Jinny’s quilt, Renaissance Garden, uses this technique. As a result, we often cut into a beautiful portion of the fabric, forcing it to fit within that shape, and possibly spoiling the design of the fabric. Jinny began to wonder what would happen if we let the design of the fabric dictate the boundaries of the shape. The pattern includes an instruction sheet on soft-edge piecing

Good traditional design ideas- for advanced quilters.

Jinny only had one or two equations, but from overlaying the plastic sheet over the designs there were many, many "aha" moments when the design suddenly made sense!

Jinny only had one or two equations, but from overlaying the plastic sheet over the designs there were many, many "aha" moments when the design suddenly made sense! You can SEE IT! Jinny keeps the dialogue down to a minimum. She uses her words very carefully in a good teaching manner so that you can follow along her thinking. She diagrams her points by asking you to visualize A, B, C or further on - on the design block.

  • Amazing book for experienced quilters who are looking for extra sparkle in your designs. Not for beginning nor "make-it-in-a-day" quilters. Concepts can be successfully used in medias outside of quilting. Well written with clear explanations and examples. Plan to invest considerable time in design and production, but end product is awesome. After checking it out multiple times from the library, I knew I had to own it.

  • Great book for innovative persons who like new ideas. Love it. Plan on making several quilts with this
    method. Thank you!

  • nice

  • Love Jinny Beyer patterns and her fabrics are just as awesome. This book helps put a spin on your ordinary quilt designs and makes a block look exquisite.

  • Excellent

  • I had been trying to purchase this book for ages. A friend suggested Amazon. They had the book, in fact several.
    The book cost very little,but as I live in another country, the postage/shipping, was 4 times more than the cost of the book.I purchased the cheapest available - of course! It took a good while to arrive, though within the time stated, and although it was supposed to be 2nd hand, it is in pristine condition. Needless to say I am happy with my purchase. The book is "Soft Edged Piecing" by Jinny Beyer.

  • Those who are familiar with Jinny's books know how well-written and clear her instructions are. This book is no exception. Jinny's pioneering foray into a new technique is presented in a beautifully illustrated, easy-to-understand book that any quilter would love to own. Along with many photos of stunning quilts showcasing the soft-edge piecing technique, Jinny takes you step-by-step through the process. I was never a fan of applique until I purchased this title and fell in love with the effects of soft-edge piecing. I was also fortunate enough to take the class taught by Jinny herself on this technique, and I can personally vouch for the fact that reading this book is like having Jinny giving you a private lesson, in your own home, at your own pace. I highly recommend this book to any quilter, applique fan or not!

  • Very inspiring.
