I am positive that this book will be popular with many of our readers as I know how many of you enjoy embroidery. The book includes step-by-step instructions for every embroidery stitch and quilting technique required to replicate these quilts. Two pull out pattern sheets provide the full-size embroidery designs and templates for every quilt. The embroidery designs can be used to enhance any quilt so you don't necessarily have to make the quilts in this book. Once you open the cover to this book you are sure to find lots of appealing ideas that you use in your next project.


Patchwork & Quilting

July 2007

This Australian publication has a nostalgic feel to it, teddy bears in Edwardian sailor suits, Tana Lawn squares embroidered with butterflies, English cottage garden flowers, exquisitely made in soft pastel shades. The 6 quilts occupy the first 88 pages; the rest of the book is a photographic compendium of the stitches used and the quilting techniques necessary to make the quilts. The patterns are included in loose sheets at the end of the book. A book which dissolves the boundaries between the two crafts.
