Quilts and Christmas are the perfect blend. This is a quilting-arts book for creative sewists who love and cherish the poem "The Night Before Christmas." This book commemorates the 200th anniversary of the writing in 1822 and publication in 1823 of this most notable holiday poem. The poem has provided ten generations of children with delight and anticipation of Christmas. The poem, illustrated with 29 festive quilted scenes, offers a beautiful-to-read family experience, and nine antique and vintage quilts are patterned here, with complete instructions, to inspire today's quilt makers to create their own holiday bed coverings. The nine patterns are appropriately named after the eight reindeer and, of course, Rudolph. Some patterns are re-creations from old, traditional quilt designs, while others put a modern spin on a vintage design. Some patterns can be hand-pieced, while others use fast, new, rotary-cutting techniques. AUTHOR: Sue Reich is an expert quilt historian and quilter. Her many bestselling books on quilting include World War II Quilts and Quiltings, Frolicks, and Bees. Reading "The Night Before Christmas" poem has been a family tradition for 50 years. SELLING POINTS: . Charmingly illustrating the poem with quilts, kindles nostalgia for everyone who's read "The Night Before Christmas" .
