Machine Applique

Sharon Perna, Author Sterling Publishing (NY) $0 (158p) ISBN 978-0-8069-4774-7
Veteran needleworker Perna provides comprehensive instructions for planning applique designs, making patterns, preparing fabrics, and selecting colors, basic tools and materials. There are also sewing techniques for the quicker machine applique-without-seams method, as well as the applique-with-seams procedure. ""The Gallery'' section offers 18 color photographs of wall hangings, clothing, table linens, pillows, etc. Several are striking combinations of applique, quilting and embroidery in imposing sizes. Others are smaller, simpler but no less attractive. Whether readers want to make an elaborate portrait of a ``Renaissance Man'' (almost 3 4) or a place mat with a single motif, they'll find the instructions intelligently arranged, precisely detailed and illustrated with sharp drawings. Rounding out this quality guide are 80 full-size patterns with suggestions for their incorporation into one's own needlework designs. Better Homes and Gardens Book Club selection. (April 5)
