4.5 out of 5 stars

I've really enjoyed reading about and practicing this technique. It does need some practice to get stitch density correct but the photography is excellent and 'speaks for itself'. She explains it well, covering every aspect of 'threadplay' and also covers well basic patchwork and quilting. I am an experienced quilter but I would imagine even a beginner free motion quilter would enjoy this - often humorous - very well presented publication. I've been inspired to go on and experiment further with this technique with complete success. So yes, I highly recommend this book. Thank you Libby Lehman - I'm well pleased.

This book is packed full of coloured photographs of the Author's own wonderful quilts along with close ups showing an amazing amount of detail. Lots of information on threads, fabric, stabilisers, embroidery hoops, sewing machines and needles etc. Full instructions are given on how to make a quilt top ready for embroidery and/or applique and details on how to complete your quilt. Thoroughly recommend it to anyone interested in surface detail.
Just one very tiny irritation - Quite a few references to details in another part of the book.

Libby has shown me through her book of Threadplay, that quilting can be so much more than what quilting used to be. I love her choice of colors and patterns.I truely admire her work and would highly recomend this book.

There seems to be a disturbing trend in the sewing machine embroidery world of taking a single idea and trying to turn it into a book. The technique described, while attractive, could easily be covered in a magazine article or at most a chapter in a book.
