Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Teachers and parents looking for ways to introduce children to the delights of quilting will find this book a veritable treasure trove of practical information and inspiration. More than 800 students in the Seattle area have completed 50 group and individual quilting projects under Ball's tutelage. Each of the 40 projects is graded for difficulty and includes information on appropriate age levels, the number of instruction sessions needed to complete the project, and instructions and color photos of students and their finished artwork. Some of the activities involve painting and printing on fabric, as well as fusible appliqu one "Fish Prints" project uses either fresh or rubber fish, imprinted on a background fabric and embellished to create a marine scene. A solid addition to public and school libraries. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
