Reivew from Barbara Rhoades
Applique!  I love applique.  It is very relaxing to me and it allows me to add my own creativity to my projects.   Quilts and table runners are the nine types of projects the author has presented.  The first chapter of 11 pages gives basic tips on how to do applique and includes thread, scissors, needles, conditioner and positioning among a host of other things.  Extra tips are found in framed boxes.   The patterns themselves have a color photo of the finished item with the finished quilt and block sizes.  A small paragraph talks about the quilts followed by the material and cutting lists which are clearly listed.  The graphics make sure you are sewing the blocks correctly and there is even a recipe at the end of each project.  Who knew?  A quilt book and a recipe book all in one!   Any templates needed are provided at full size - a plus as you don't need to run out for copies.  The last three pages are basic quilt making tips - two pages - and a one page bio of the author.  Don't be put off by the mostly black cover because what you find inside is bright, cheery and wonderful.
