Review

...This volume not only offers fabulous, wonderful, inspirational designs, it contains a section on developing variations that would be useful for any craft. The designs could be used for applique, beading, embroidery, and many other media, as well as quilting. Some are shown in arrangements -- one page even shows three designs incorporated into one. Many have been developed for continuous line machine quilting. This is an excellent resource in any design library. -E. Rice

About the Author

Joyce received a National Quilting Association grant to study the use of Native American designs by quilters. This study directly led to Joyce writing five books. She has now written over a dozen books and 70 articles on quilting subjects. Quilting appeals to Joyce for the aspects of encouraging creativity, playing with color combinations, learning new techniques, observing all the wonderful quilts made by quilters, and enjoying non-harmful sensory overload.

If you already own "Quilting Patterns from Native American Designs" and "Native American Designs for Quilting" do not bother with "Native American Designs 2." As Ms Mori states in the introduction, which it is unlikely most folks read prior to ordering this book, "Native American Designs 2" is a selection of her favorites from the titles shown above. It does have a few "bonus" patterns, but if you're expecting additions to Ms Mori's previous excellent compilations, this isn't it.

i don't know what book the other reviewer referred to, though i would like to. i am writing about joyce mori's second book of quilting designs from native american work.

this volume not only offers fabulous, wonderful, inspirational designs, it contains a section on developing variations that would be useful for any craft.

the designs could be used for applique, beading, embroidery, and many other media, as well as quilting. some are shown in arrangements--one page even shows three designs incorporated into one. many have been developed for continuous line machine quilting.

this is an excellent resource in any design library.

This book was written with quilters in mind. It has some introductory information on how to use the patterns and a little history. The patterns are taken from or based on indian artistry mainly in pottery, silverwork and basketry. The 100 plus patterns may be copied for personal use only. Using my own imagination, I can picture some of these interesting patterns being used for stenciling on a wall, inspiration for artwork as well as the quilt stitching that it was designed for. I am sure that I will put some of these patterns to use.
