Editorial Reviews

Review

Take a fresh look at floral applique with 14 sophisticated applique projects, including pillows, table runners and small tapestry style quilts and wall hangings. The book provided full-size templates for 45 applique flowers, 2 butterflies and 5 borders. The designs have a real Jacobean essence and are hand worked. There are helpful instructions on how to use today's modern fabric and still create an antique look. This is a lovely book and perfect for those who prefer hand sewing. (Fabrications, June 1, 2011)

Are you looking for a way to add more beautiful flowers into your life this time of year? I know for many of us the only place we see fresh flowers this time of year is at the florist. Deborah Kemball offers a wonderful way to bring more beauty into your life. Her book offers 14 sophisticated floral applique projects, varying in size from pillows to quilts. She includes templates for 45 different applique flowers, two butterflies and five borders. The book is also filled with wonderful tips to make your work a success, eg: fussy cutting fabrics for some of the flowers. You'll enjoy mixing the various flowers to create your own individual project.

More About the Author

I have been quilting for nearly 20 years now but discovered my love of applique five years ago and feel I finally found my real passion in the world of quilting. I am greatly inspired by antique textiles, especially the designs that influenced European silk design in the 18th century. The combination of coming to my design inspiration from this source and my self taught applique result in original, highly textured and detailed quilts. I feel very fortunate that they have been received so appreciatively by the quilting world and they have picked up many major national (Canadian) and international awards including at Houston, Paducah and Chicago over the past three years. I am so happy to be able to share some of my techniques and designs in my book, "Beautiful Botanicals" and hope that with the flexibility of the designs that other quilters will be able to either replicate identical copies or adapt them to make their own original quilts and pillows.

Format: Paperback
Deborah's appliqué looks much more complex than it actually is because this artist uses fussy cutting fabric to use for the centers and other parts of the flower to give it more complex look. She shows some interesting techniques in embroidering the tenderals and stamens of the flower which give more realism to them. Along with added stitching around the centers to give a dust of pollen help with the realism of her appliqué. She uses a lot of interest background colors to bright up the floral. If you like appliqué, this book is for you, it has LOTS of patterns and your imagination can go wild.

Beautiful, there is so much to see in this book.

The instructions are excellent, easy to read with drawings and real life photographs which I find is easier to follow.

Her designs, fabric and colour are great.

I was excited to find this lovely book at a good price. It did not let me down, page after page of beautiful quilts to make. The basic flower instructions are easy to follow, and although aimed more at an intermediate, there is always something to learn even for those who are experienced. The photography is very well done with detailed shots to encourage and inspire.

I have not appliqued before, so it was with a little trepidation that I decided to work on a project from this book, which I received as a gift. But as the petals and stems "appeared" under my needle, following Ms. Kemball's clear photographs and concise directions, I was amazed and delighted with how the piece was turning out! There is no "basic" beginning instruction on needle-turn applique, and if you don't like paper piecing, steer clear of the multi-triangle border, but you can find helps for those online. I think I'd love this book just to leaf through even if I didn't quilt at all!! Eagerly awaiting the next offering from this woman's talented mind!

Format: Paperback
Being a gardener, I am always on the lookout to use flowers and plants in my craft work. This applique book has sumptuous flower work. It gives all the applique and embroidery techniques you need to work the projects. The instructions are clear and the photographs are excellent making what looks like complex designs fairly easy to make using fussy cutting. Instructions and templates are given for the individual stylized flowers. I love the Pomegranate and Coneflower. In addition to the flowers, there's a butterfly. The quilt, wallhanging and pillow projects are wonderful. Finishing ideas and borders are also given. The final flourish is a gallery with more ideas. This is a superb book on floral applique that I would recommend to anyone. This review first appeared on Karen Platt's book review website.

One of the nicest and best written applique books ever. I've only had the book for two weeks and have already finished one project. I'm considering doing a class, so will be ordering many more of these books for each student.I thoroughly recommend this book
