The Quilter

Jo Avery is a well-known modern quiltmaker, but in this title she focuses on her love of embroidery. Using wool thread and felt appliqué she lends her inimitable style to 15 fresh designs that breathe new life into traditional crewelwork. Projects include hangings, pincushions, and home and fashion accessories. Many of the designs use classic patchwork patterns such as hexagons, clamshells, and stars, so are sure to appeal to quilters looking to expand their textile repertoire. For those unfamiliar with this style of embroidery, there is a detailed chapter on all you need to get started, from materials and equipment to techniques and an illustrated stitch library.

Stitch Magazine

Jo throws all the verve and vibrancy of her quilt work right bang into the middle of crewelwork and drags it squarely into the modern era. She applies her trademark love of colour with her favourite threads to a range of samplers and projects. She covers the pretty and the functional, while mixing up patchwork influences with a bit of retro vibe. From start to finish her book is a great big wallop of stitch cheer.
