Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Armstrong (Wildflowers: Designs for Applique & Quilting; Wild Birds: Designs for Applique & Quilting) is an appliqu artist who specializes in re-creating the world of nature in fabric. Over the years, she has developed techniques that make hand appliqu more enjoyable, including a simple "lightbox" technique for drawing the applique pattern on the background fabric and a tiny-bias technique for making narrow bias lines like those in most flower stems. This book teaches those techniques and also includes 24 wildflower and 18 insect and other garden fauna patterns, plus nine learning projects. Each design includes a color photo, line drawing templates, and instructions. These lighthearted projects can be done by the beginner but will be better appreciated by those with some hand appliqu experience. Recommended for large public library and quilting collections.
