A sumptuous cover with the subtitle 'using wool, silk, cotton and home decor fabrics' so this is textiles as in fabrics, not techniques. There are 14 fabulously coloured and exciting projects in this book, including pin cushion, bolster pillow, throw, table runner, needle case, tote, wallhanging and quilts. You'll discover fabric guidelines, how-to's on wool applique, double-fold binding, embroidery and favourite tools of the trade. The projects show the materials, block size, construction, methods, assembly, templates and finishing. The projects explore a wide variety of piecing and applique techniques. Lynn encourages you to engage in quilting with a free spirit, a willingness to embrace eclectic fabrics and come up with something a little bit different. This is a book that really appeals to the designer in me.
