Pick up your needle and create landscapes filled with fanciful flowers and creatures from field, forest, and ocean. Designer Wendy Williams shows you how to make 15 applique projects in a style that's part folk, part contemporary, and entirely delightful. Easy freezer-paper techniques and wool felt make the stitching go quickly. Add to the fun by embellishing with hand embroidery and machine quilting. Includes 15 projects for all skill levels: quilts, pillows, bags, sewing kit, needle case, and more. New ways to mix wool, cotton, and linen give your applique a fresh look. Includes instructions for 13 embroidery stitches.
Wendy Williams began her career as a teacher of fashion. She has been teaching patchwork and quilting classes for approximately five years, and has had numerous quilts and bags published in craft magazines. Wendy currently lives in Sydney, Australia.
