A quilt is about home, daily life, where you've been and who you've known. It's about stories and history. A quilt is imbued with the power to rediscover memories, open up conversations and bring people together. For Julius Arthur of House of Quinn, this idea extends into our design ethos bringing together stories and narratives to create everyday items and objects.

Modern Quilting highlights how traditional quilting and sewing techniques can be utilized to create contemporary items and objects for the home. Showcasing 20 stunning projects, Julius shows you the beauty of renewing textiles and materials by giving them a new life. Contemporary quilting honors the traditional processes but allows you to create the rules of what you want to create.

With a more creative and free approach to working with textiles, quilts and making, Julius guides the reader through four skill based workshops, and techniques, such as stitching, quilting, collage and mark making, before opening up into a range of modern quilt-based projects that can be created from combining these fundamental skills. With stunning photography and step-by-step illustrations throughout, fall in love with this age-old craft and discover how to create meaningful items for your own living spaces, places and daily rituals.

Author Biography

Julius Arthur is a designer and maker residing in Sussex, England, after growing up in his home county of Cornwall. Graduating with a masters in fashion design, Julius's focus soon turned to contemporary craft practice and textile design. With a close connection to his rural upbringing and the memories of making things with his parents at a young age, Julius looked to textiles, interiors and traditional crafts as a way to experiment and design with different ways of working. In 2016 Julius launched House of Quinn, a design studio with a considered approach to making handmade objects for living spaces. Items that are re?ective of our daily rituals and become part of personal collections and narratives. Working with renewed and consciously sourced textiles, House of Quinn quilt collections center on using traditional (quilting and appliqué) techniques to create contemporary objects with a sense of place and function. After launching in 2016 with the ?rst quilted textiles collection 'Renewed', House of Quinn has become synonymous for its signature hand-made quilts, soft furnishings and interior products. This is his first book.
