WOW! This book is amazing.
12 different projects using quilting, sewing and embroidery techniques that are absolutely stunning. I know everyone may believe that quilting is quilting, but whether it is English, American or something else, each style is completely different in both design and techniques.
I love Americana, and this book really is a delight. Applique, foundation piecing and even punch needle are included in the creations. You will learn several techniques and be given the chance to learn new skills as well as advance your current know how.
The New York bag is delightful but my favourite was the Thank you America quilt design. These projects use up the tiny pieces in your stash box and there are template sheets included.
This book is fabulous!-- Tracy Shephard * Postcard Reviews *
