Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Flamme (coauthor, Thinking Outside the Block: Step-by-Step to Dynamic Quilts) often draws inspiration from the garden, and here she applies that inspiration to easy-to-make fabric flowers that require only scraps of fabric, stabilizers, fusible web, and basic floral supplies. Although decorative machine stitching can be used to embellish these flowers, most require no sewing and can be completed in an afternoon. The book includes illustrated step-by-step instructions for ten different flower projects that feature, e.g., daisies, sunflowers, orchids, calla lilies, and hydrangeas. The finished flowers can be arranged in vases or used without stems as flower pins, as clothing adornments, for scrapbooking, for gift packages, or to lend quilts a 3-D element. Alternately, Fun-To-Wear highlights softer flower blossoms as decorative clothing elements and hair ornaments. The 36 projects, most of which can be made entirely by hand, are grouped into 13 basic types: free-motion, gathered, five-petal, yo-yo, roses, ruched, individual petal, pansies, folded-petal, loopy, bias-strip, poppy, and felt. Each project is accompanied by a one-page color photo of the finished flower, a list of materials required, and step-by-step instructions. Searle uses a wide variety of fabrics, including some really smashing silk charmeuse, and offers several novel embellishment ideas, e.g., using coiled zippers as flower centers. Both books are good choices for public libraries; Fun-To-Wear is warmly recommended. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
