Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

This collection of classic and contemporary patchwork and appliqué quilt patterns features colorful new twists on familiar styles, including traditional patterns such as Jacob's Ladder and Tumbling Blocks. Suggested color schemes, plus full-color illustrations and photographs, are given for each design, allowing quilters to follow their personal preferences and styles. Reproducible templates are provided for all of the appliqués, although they may be somewhat difficult to duplicate because the book's binding does not lay flat. While an introduction to quilting basics is provided, the focus is on the patterns themselves, so this is best suited to quilters with some experience. Recommended for all quilting collections.
