Author: McClun, Diana
Details: From Library Journal Geometric or applique, wall hanging or wearable art, quilting is ever popular. Trying to breathe fresh life into traditional patterns, McClun and Nownes ( Quilts! Quilts! Quilts , Quilt Digest Pr., 1989 and Quilts Galore! , Quilt Digest Pr., 1990) dish up altered patterns, new color combinations, and borders. Though many of these patterns can be found elsewhere, the book rises above the mundane with a few features. Necessary adjustments to covering, yardage needed, and cutting requirements for each pattern are charted for crib through king sizes. Accompanying instructions are short, but the crisp line drawings help. The first chapter of patterns is the strongest in the book, while instructions for technique, sewing, and finishing touches fall awkwardly into later chapters. Still, this is inspirational and beautiful. Recommended for medium and large public libraries.- Karen Ellis, Baldwin Boettcher Lib. , Humble, Tex.Copyright 1993 Reed Business Information, Inc.
