Editorial Reviews

May/June 2014 Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting
Can you use wool, cotton, and linen in the same quilt? Absolutely! Wendy Williams proves it with this collection of quilts, bags, pillows, and small gifts. Stitchers of all skill levels will enjoy the projects in this book.
May/June 2014 The Applique Society Newsletter
Wool applique is very popular these days. If you haven't tried working with wool yet I am sure you will want to once you see the variety of beautiful colors and textures available. In her new book Wild Blooms & Colorful Creatures, Wendy Williams givers her applique a fresh new look by mixing wool with linen and cotton. Wendy says that after working on a few of the projects in her book you will soon start to look at fabrics with a different eye. Before jumping right into a quilt you will want to hone your skills on some of the smaller projects featured in the book. There are 15 projects for all skill levels: quilts, pillows, bags, sewing kit, needle case and more. Instructions are clearly written, embroidery stitches are illustrated with drawings. The patterns inside the book are full-size and lend themselves to a folk art look with a bit of whimsy. If you are looking for a place to start learning to work with wool I recommend starting on some of the smaller projects found in this book. Soon you will have developed the confidence to tackle a few of the simply charming quilts featured in the book.
May/June 2014 Quilter's Companion Magazine
Wendy has long been renowned for her exquisite wool applique and now you can get a whole book filled with her lovely designs. Included are 15 small quilts and other projects that cleverly combine wool and cotton fabrics to create colourful and whimsical designs.
All About Applique
This book is all about combining our traditional cotton prints with wool and linen, to add a new dimension. Wendy starts out with a section on appliqué basics that gives information on wool, wool felt, threads, templates, and her style of needle-turn that uses a running stitch close to the turned edge. There’s also a whole page of illustrated embroidery stitches for adding special touches.

Then on to the projects! There are wall quilts, runners, pillows, bags, and sewing notions galore. All of the appliqué templates are printed at full size, and there’s even a pull-out section for the larger designs. Always a bonus!
