Library Journal Review

writes Townswick, who goes on to say that "it comes from combining colors and fabrics that please you, choosing designs that appeal to you, and using techniques that produce results you like." This book is based on a series of workshops offered by Townswick on preparing the fabric, marking, assembling, and stitching appliqu and is the result of her teaching experience over a number of years. In the course of working through the book, the reader completes 16 appliqud blocks, each building on the techniques taught in the blocks before it. Close-up full-color illustrations and a logical step-by-step approach make this one of the best books available on learning or enhancing skills in appliqu work. Highly recommended for public libraries. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
