Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Drawing on the ingenuity of American crafters and the celebratory designs of such modern masters as Matisse, Soltow offers inspirational designs that feature animals as motifs in quilts for bed covers and in totes, shawls, place mats, etc. Altogether there are 20 projects, and each has many recommended variations. Soltow also urges the reader not to follow her direction blindly, but to combine or adapt ideas to create an original piece. Full-size patterns for tracing each design and its variations come with clear instructions on basic techniques. One of the more endearing patterns: Night in the Forest, with attendant bat, deer, fox, et al., and a variation, Fairy Tale Castle, with a frog awaiting the magic kiss.

This is a great book of appliques. I searched all over the internet for animal appliques for a baby quilt I was making of zoo animals. When I got this book it not only had the appliques but it also has several quilt ideas for every catagory. You won't be disappointed with this book. Several of my friend have already stollen it for a few days for their quilt ideas.

While it's nice to have full size templates (which this book has), many of the projects in this book look as though they were designed for children to make, not for me to make for children. It's best use might be for teaching applique and quilt making to children.

The instructions are very good and the author gives the quilter a great deal of freedom to play with color, placement, etc., but many of the drawings are dumbed down and simplistic. I found very little humor or whimsy in them. The book also lacks color photos except for the cover. While I am not inspired to make one of these quilts, I have decided to keep the book as a reference.

I do not like this book. It is not what I expected. The patterns are old and I would never use any of them.
