In Wise Craft Quilts, celebrated quilt designer and crafter Blair Stocker shares ways to use cherished fabrics to make quilts with more meaning. Each of twenty-one quilts featured here gathers a special collection of fabric, outlines a new technique, and spins a story. By using special fabrics as the starting point for each project -- from a wedding dress to baby's first clothes, worn denim, Tyvek race numbers, and more -- the finished quilt is made even more special. Create quilts that have a story to tell and you'll find a whole new level of appreciation for what they represent in your life and the lives of the ones you love. -- Back cover.
