    You CAN have a green thumb

    This is definitely the book for me. I DON¿T have a green thumb but I do appliqué. I wish I had found this book last fall rather than now going into summer but the book will still be there come fall. Appliqué is something I love to do in front of the fireplace on a cool/cold night. The first 25 pages are all about appliqué hot-to¿s and quilting basics along with choosing colors and fabrics. It is a chapter that very thoroughly covers all these points. Then there are 10 different flowers to ¿grow¿ under your needle. Pillows and wall hangings make up the 10 patterns. While no quilts are shown, there is no reason you couldn¿t turn the patterns into quilts. Each project begins with a paragraph about the flower and the finished size of the project. A materials and cutting list follow this. Simple construction directions are given with finishing suggestions. All templates are included. The more complex patterns come with color keys as well. Grab some scrap fabric (this book will give you a way to use up those scraps you just can¿t part with), some template plastic, your ruler and cutting mat and this book. When you are done, you will have a ¿green thumb¿ to show for it!
