I always find several quilts in Nancy Mahoney's books to make me want to start making them immediately - with this one - I want to get started on more than usual! I love this book and if you also like thirties style fabrics, and applique, then you should be as happy as I am with this one.
The "look inside" shows the array of patterns and the bonus for anyone who uses fusible or paper template applique is, not only are they all full size, they're also in reverse - makes it easy to see where you are when you compare your work to the colour picture in the book. If you want to make the blocks by hand applique (yes I do) then the image has to be reversed first.
For me, the House on the Hill quilt will be first, simply because it's the smallest at around 43 x 43 (blocks are 9")and the next up will be the Peony Garden, its around 72 x 84 (blocks at 8 1/2) but I can't resist it for much longer and as summer's coming hand applique on a small square is a cool occupation, and there's plenty of sewing on this one. The rose wreath will be ideal to make in warm colours for a cosy throw on a winter evening, this finishes around 60 x 60. Instructions are good and the quilts, and runners can be made by hand or fusible applique methods. You can use up lots of colourful scraps on these quilts, but some fat quarters of thirties style fabrics would be a good investment if you want to make a lot of them, they do go a long way and are somehow so right for these designs.

Format: Paperback
If appliqué is something you love to do, Ms. Mahoney's book, APPLIQUÉ QUILT REVIVAL, is one you should have in your library. All the quilts are sewn in fabric reminiscent of the 1930's. But if the `30's fabric is not your thing, just update the pattern by using a fabric that will go with your home.

Ms. Mahoney begins this book with a one-page introduction that talks about quilt patterns of the `30s and the colors of that era. This is followed by a 9-page section covering such quilting basics as cutting and squaring blocks, appliqué techniques and embroidery stitches. The final section before the patterns covers assembling and finishing the quilts.

Now the fun begins. 14 patterns for quilts and a table runner are given. Of course, you can always use one block to make a pillow or three to make a wall hanging. Each pattern gives the finished quilt and block size followed by a paragraph about the quilt.

The materials and cutting lists are clearly written. Appliqué and block assembly instructions include graphics to help show what the written instructions tell you. Assembly, finishing and quilting suggestions are the final items in the pattern. And, of course, don't forget the templates are included at full size.

Birds, flowers, rabbits, kitties, baskets, butterflies, horses, cowboys and houses make up the large variety of items to appliqué. There is something for every taste in this wonderful book.

Applique Quilt Revival: Updated Patterns from the 30's 31 Aug. 2008
By H. Lint - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a fantastic find! A wonderful resource for applique patterns with many helpful tips along the way. As an intermediate quilter and beginner at applique, I'm finding projects galore here. It's presented in a clear, concise format with beautiful illustrations. The peony garden and tulip blocks are my absolute favorites followed closely by the fandango basket arrangement.

This would be a great gift for any quilter...so treat yourself or someone you know to some applique inspiration.

Format: Paperback
This book has so many wonderful designs to choose from with well written and easy to follow directions. I already made the "Cowboy Days" quilt as a baby gift. You can see it on geraniumfarm.org posted on 2/3/09. The hard part will be deciding which one to make next!

Applique Quilt Revival 26 Sept. 2008

Format: Paperback
I really enjoy this book. Well written and informative. Patterns are such that you can make as illustrated or edit the design by omission as desired.

Format: Paperback
The cool thing about this book is that it's an homage to history while including updated quiltmaking tehniques. Besides the patterns, there's information on all the basics, like rotary cutting, machine piecing, pressing, squaring up, assembling the quilt top, adding borders, and finishing your quilt. Nancy also includes illustrated instructions for her method of hand appliqué plus two forms of machine appliqué. The whole package!

Nancy presents a dozen darling appliqué designs that are based on patterns published during the 1930s, and she gives us some background about the history. We have a huge array of 30s repro fabrics available to us today so that we can re-create the unmistakable and greatly appealing look of that period. The book gives a variety of projects for using the designs, and as the introduction says, "These wonderful homey quilts offer something for everyone: delightful bunnies, cheery flowerpots, darling kittens, beautiful butterflies, stunning wreaths, and frolicking cowboys."
