Editorial Reviews

Review

Here's another one for your library, yet I have to admit that on first glance, I almost yawned (crack the Red Bull). So, what turned me around? Well, I needed to look again. Hard to believe (harder than David Beckham's pecs), but even I can be wrong. The truth is that '30s fabrics are not my fave, however, judging by the nauseating and endless variety of these sugary-cute prints, they're working for somebody. So, I valiantly put aside my prejudice, looked more closely at these traditional patterns that blend blocks with simple applique and, wouldn't you know it? I'm hooked. The quilts, using those snoozer '30s fabrics, are charmingly pretty.

I see a diamond in the rough for those of us not into the thrill of '30s (unless you're talking waist size here). These babies can be made up using any fabrics. Altogether, there are 14 different patterns that even a stone-cold beginner can deviate from to create something original. I especially like 'Ride 'Em Cowboy' and 'Fandango'. And, I could easily see 'House on the Hill' as a great friendship quilt for someone moving into or away from your area. Should you buy it? Go for it. You won't regret the space it takes up on your already cluttered shelves. --Mark Lipinski, Quilter's Home --Jan/Feb 2009

The cool thing about this book is that it's an homage to history while including updated quiltmaking techniques. Besides all 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 applique plus two forms of machine applique. The whole package!

Nancy presents a dozen darling applique 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." My favorite is "Fandango," made with the Colonial Scrap Basket block. --allaboutapplique.net

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
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.

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!

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.

This book was everything I thought it might be and more. Even sold one to a friend because she had a hissy fit (yes, I'm from Mississippi!) over the quilt on the cover!
