Even though I teach quilting, I always begin with the general direction section of a quilt book in hopes of learning a new trick or tip. I was rewarded in 48-Hour Appliqué Quilts¿! Linda Causee explained how to make mitered borders in a format that I believe even my beginning students will understand! THANK YOU, Linda. I have read other author¿s explanations of mitered borders but none made as much sense as Linda did. The rest f the general directions contained plenty of graphics with the explanations making them so easy to understand. This will be one book that I will use to teach to my students appliqué. The book only contains five quilts BUT those five have 73 different blocks between them. WOW! Most are flower type of appliqués but there are 10 that as especially for children such as animals, a house, a heart and Sunbonnet Suet and Overall Bill. If you only make one of each appliqué, by the time you have those 73 squares completed, you will be proficient at appliqué. The quilt named Hearts and Flowers has a ¿double¿ affect. While you appliqué all the hearts and flowers on the squares, the patchwork itself creates a heart. This shows how you can create a background of the very thing you are appliquéing! Each of the five quilts has a list of materials needed, cutting directions and very simple instructions for creating the quilt itself. The general directions are where you will find the ¿how-to¿ on the appliquéing technique. Whether you want to make a quilt for a child or an adult, this book will provide everything you need to make a wonderful keepsake.
