Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
At first glance, the striking appliqued quilt on this book's cover speaks to beautiful traditional symmetry. Then you notice that some of the quilt's carefully appliqued motifs are actually insects--clever additions to a work appropriately titled Don't Bug Me! A self-taught quilter, Marshall uses her own "take-away applique" technique for accurate placing of applique pieces. Here she leads the reader through this technique in step-by-step fashion and also describes her method of quilting without a frame. This book deserves a wider audience of quilters than the word "applique" in the title would suggest. Included are 50 pages of motifs and patterns to be used as building blocks for the reader's own designs. Highly recommended for quilting collections.
