Like applique? HOP TO IT! provides you with 12 blocks and eight projects all for applique.
Ms. Sitar begins her book with a chapter on explaining how to plan the colors for your project. There are seven pages that show her fabric picks for her "rule of five" in various colorways. There are tips scattered throughout the book and set off in colored boxes. She then goes on to explain three different ways to put applique items on your blocks. She doesn't talk about the one way I like to do applique and that is by sewing a lightweight fabric or stabilizer to the applique, cutting a small slit in the stabilizer and turning the applique right side out. I like this the best as corners are not a problem and there are never any raw edges.
The projects each have a color photo of the item and plenty of graphics for those of us who are more visually attuned. The materials list is set off in a colored box with a bright border and contains the finished block and project size. The cutting list and rest of the assembly instructions are clearly written. The projects include a quilt, a wall hanging, a table runner, a table topper, a pillow, a throw and pincushions. One of the final pages gives instructions on creating a label for the finished item.
The last chapter contains a bio of the author. She has included family photos of her grandparents, mom and grandmother-in-law.
