Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

For a revolutionary approach to a traditional needlecraft, try creating a quilt adapted from a favorite photograph. The seemingly elusive art of capturing a realistic image in fabric is clearly presented in Faces & Places, utilizing a relatively easy layering technique. The approach is not for beginners, but one need not be an expert quilter to produce successful results. With excellent, detailed instructions, Charlotte Warr Andersen explains how to select an appropriate subject, enlarge the design, mark the fabric, choose the right appliqué fabrics, and master the key stitching method of needle-turn appliqué. There are good diagrams throughout, as well as a tear-out sheet offering several full-size sample patterns. The book is filled with many exquisite examples of photograph-inspired scenic and portrait quilts by Andersen as well as by a number of other skilled quilt artists.

Although the content is a bit intimidating at first, Charlotte Andersen gives detailed instructions, easy-to-understand directions, and constant encouragement. When I first leafed through the book, looking at the photos, I was convinced I'd never be able to grasp this technique, let alone master it. After reading Andersen's text and getting caught up in her infectious enthusiasm for this type of work, I'm inspired and ready to make magic. A must-have for any quilter ready for something completely different from the old nine-patch block.

Want to applique with the Best! Pick up the book Faces and
Places: Images in Applique by Charlotte Warr Andersen. The
book is a complete guide to the process that she has developed
to create her wonderful pictorial quilts. Do you want to create
in fabric a portrait of your loved ones? This is the book to
study. Anderson's writing is concise and simple to follow with
many pictures to help you see the steps. Her book starts
with the basics of needleturn applique (no freezer paper), through
all the details for a great finished product. It has four learning
projects, patterns included. Definitely time consuming, but the
results are spectacular! A phenomenal book for the quilter
seriously looking for a way to portray whatever they desire, even
great for a beginner who likes a challenge. It's how I got started
in quilting

I feel like a 5 year old with a new toy. This book is sooo cool. I am making a portrait of my grandparents using the instructions in this book. I am a very novice quilter, and I am able to understand the directions. Worth the money.

I can't wait to make a quilt using the techniques in this book. Charlotte shows how to take a photo, enlarge it, make a pattern, choose fabric, and applique the pieces. Although there are not as many pictures in this book, the instructions are clear. She also has projects in the book with step-by-step directions for practice. So get out those cameras and start quilting!!!

I TOOK A CLASS WITH CHARLOTTE WARR ANDERSEN AT THE INTERNATIONAL QUILT SHOW. HER WORK IS STUNNINGLY PRECISE, AND WHILE I AM UNLIKELY TO EVER ATTEMPT REVERSE APPLIQUE AGAIN, THIS REPRINT GIVES PRECISE DIRECTIONS ON HER PROCESS, BUT IS EASILY ADAPTABLE TO OTHER STYLES OF APPLIQUE & THREAD PAINTING.

Fabulous! This out of print book is full of detailed instructions. I am very fortunate to have it in my library of quilting books. I am about half way through reading this one and am gleaning a lot of information from it.
