Michele Hill began her quilting journey in 1986 and has been addicted ever since. Applique is her passionespecially designing applique quilts inspired by William Morris. She has been teaching applique for twenty years. Michele lives in South Australia.
Hill (William Morris in Applique) uses both embroidery and machine applique in this series of projects inspired by the work of English author and illustrator Beatrix Potter. Potter's whimsical children's stories featuring Peter Rabbit are classics, and her animal illustrations feature prominently in several of the projects, including a machine-appliqued baby quilt and a felt baby ball. Quilters looking for grown-up projects sans cute animals will find several, including a machine applique-based reproduction of a mid-19th-century wedding quilt that belonged to Potter's parents. Applique templates and traceable embroidery patterns are included on pullout pages. VERDICT Hill's designs celebrate the best-known works of Potter, while also bringing some of her lesser-known botanical illustrations to the forefront. Quilters interested in machine applique, as well as fans of Potter's work, will enjoy this collection. Library Journal, 3/15/2017
