Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Needleturn appliqué—a handwork technique for sewing fabric shapes to a background fabric using small, hidden stitches—is a classic of quilting. Experienced instructor Lawrence introduces novices to hand appliqué, covering the steps from selecting the appropriate supplies to transferring the design to basic and intermediate stitching. Close-up color photographs illustrate each step, and patterns and templates for nine projects, including wall hangings, table runners, and small quilts, are included. VERDICT Learning needleturn appliqué from a book may seem like a daunting prospect, but quilters familiar with basic handwork will find this book useful.
