Quilt historian Brackman (Barbara Brackman's Civil War Sampler) teams up with machine appliqué expert Menaugh in this collection of appliqué projects inspired by quilts made in Emporia, KS, between 1920 and 1950. Emporia was a hotbed of quilting activity during this era, and Brackman profiles three of the city's most prominent quilters, providing context for their work. Samples of the original creations—many now located in museums—are paired with projects that are influenced by these originals. The centerpiece of the book is the titular Emporia Rose sampler, a full-size bed quilt that draws from a number of individual quilts profiled, but smaller projects are also included. The use of machine appliqué may surprise traditionalists, but hand appliqué techniques can be implemented, too. Appliqué templates are provided on pull-out sheets for easy use. VERDICT Brackman's skill at combining history and artistry shines again in this collection. The author's many fans who follow her work online and in print will be pleased with this latest book.
