Verdict Though the book is oriented toward tweens and teens, the overviews of each topic are extremely useful, and parents may enjoy making the lively, colorful designs with older children.-Nanette Donohue, Champaign, P.L., IL Library Journal, USA Apr 13 This book is a compilation of 4 previous book published by Search Press which introduce the reader to applique, embroidery, patchwork and quilting. Each of the 4 sections of the book give an introduction to the basic techniques and stitches, before then going into several projects. There are 24 projects in total in the book. All the projects and techniques are accompanied by step by step photos giving a good visual guide, as well as written instructions.
