One designer, 14 black-and-white line drawings, and 12 talented quilters yield amazing applique applications-'apps.' Moving outside of her well-established and highly popular comfort zone of improvisational piecing, Dianne Hire has tackled applique from a typical-for-her, no-holds-barred approach. Wisely calling on the skills and talents of 12 other quilters, asking each to interpret her 14 designs, she has created a nicely disguised technical manual as a feast for the eyes and an exciting project book. Fourteen stylized floral pattern designs provide the reader with the right place to embark on a unique journey of creativity. Tips and techniques from each contributing quilter will advance the reader's sewing expertise in multiple ways. This book will either set applique design on its ear, advance it for the ages, or both.
