5.0 out of 5 stars Flowers for the non-gardener 23 April 2012
By Barbara Rhoades TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
I am a "nature viewer" meaning that I love flowers but don't like to garden. This book gives me the chance to "plant" my own flowers on a quilted item.

The book contains patterns for bags, table runners, wall hangings, neck rolls and place mats. While it doesn't specifically contain a quilt pattern, we all know quilters can "get there from here".

There are 24 pages of tips and instructions on how to choose fabrics, do applique and finish a project - complete with a label. The patterns have a paragraph about the item before the cutting and material lists. Templates are provided at full size if needed and color keys are provided. "Quilt as desired" are the only quilting instructions given.

The final page is a bio of the author. It is always fun to learn about the creator of the patterns you use. Tulips, Iris, Daffodils and more will fill your home with the flowers from nature when you create items with this book. Grab a copy and fill your house will fresh flowers.

Lovely! Good pictures and clear diagrams and instructions. It is also possible to use the designs for other things - I'm using the iris table runner design on cushions

5.0 out of 5 stars Nature's Beauty in Applique 29 Feb 2012
By Dorthy Pope - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book is beautiful to look at and provides wonderful and challenging projects. I love applique and want to use my skills on everyday useful items rather than just quilts. Susan's designs are easy to make and enhance so I can make them "mine", and her instructions are clear, precise, and complete! I have sent her a photo of my latest pillow from this book; I hope she posts it on her website for all to see.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, practical projects 2 Aug 2012
By Kim Jamieson-Hirst - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is Susan's third book published by Martingale and her projects continue to be stunning.
There are nine small projects in this book which are all inspired by a wall hanging that Susan made entitled "Swan and Nessie". While this particular pattern is not included in the book (it's gorgeous!), Susan does include the project layout so you can create your own version using the flower patterns provided in the book.
As indicated by the title, the projects in this book range from table runners to tote bags to pillows, all practical and great for gifts. They are appropriate for quilters who have had some experience - probably a little advanced for the new beginner quilter. The patterns all include appliqué (obviously!) and Susan provides detailed instructions for hand appliqué, using freezer paper, as well as information on turned-edge and fusible web appliqué.
There is also quite a bit of information on choosing fabrics so your projects will be successful. If you can't quite find the right fabric, Susan also provides tips on painting fabric to get it just the right shade. I appreciated the information on quilting that she included in the book, including suggestions for quilting the background and the appliqué.
Susan's instructions are quite detailed and she also provides you with alternate colour ways or suggestions for each project, such as using a pre-printed panel, rather than the appliqué for the tote bags. Nice to know that you can make these projects without the appliqué and they are still just as beautiful and practical.
I mentioned earlier that the pattern for "Swan and Nessie" was not included in the book, however Susan does have a wall hanging pattern featuring a swan in the book. Although it is simpler, "Swan Wall Hanging" is just as lovely and elegant - and would be quicker to complete.
If you're looking for a project to make as gift for a friend or for yourself, there are many wonderful patterns to choose from in this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Instructions and Projects! 13 Feb 2012
By cvgm - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Loving sewing, nature and gardening, this book is ideal for me! I've sewn my whole life but am new to applique. The directions on the applique process and construction are concise and easy to follow. I also appreciate the advice on lighting effect on color choice. The Ivy Zippered Case is my first project as a cosmetic bag for my daughter who loves ivy. I'm looking forward to "digging in" to more...the swan wall hanging is gorgeous!
