Editorial Reviews

Alison Glass does such an amazing job with the technical writing, explaining each and every little detail with fabulous illustrations.   The instructions are plain and easy to understand, with detailed color photography and graphics included. There is no way you can get lost and I learned so much. With its comprehensive coverage of sewn applique techniques and its clear, thorough instruction, this is a book that quilters will want in their libraries. The projects are fantastic and the tutorials are excellent but what makes this book shine is Glass' voice,  which is funny and encouraging in all the right ways.~Reviewed by Shirley B.
