Her recollections of long walks in her native England inspired her botanically correct designs. And these aren't all ordinary wildflowers.These unusual offerings will expand any quilter's applique repertoire and the more familiar wildflowers will strengthen it.

I have a passion for applique, especially realistic flowers, plants, birds, animals....nature in general. This is a book that I immediately used for a wall hanging which while not yet complete promises to be a truly gorgeous piece of art. The directions and patterns are clear and I have had no problem in creating beautiful flowers from this book. It gets a prime place on my bookshelf!
I was really excited by the prospect of this book. I have gotten interested in appliqué, but am new to this. The book seemed to promise instruction on how to make this happen. Not so much. Maybe it just wasn't intended for beginners, but really, it is disappointing.

As an example, the "patterns" are simply line drawings. So, how am I supposed to figure out how to cut out the pieces? How much extra fabric should I leave around the shape I am trying to make? At least one pattern with detailed instruction would have been good. Instead, I get instructions like "the simple leaf is the easiest".

Maybe this would be good enough for an intermediate or advanced appliqué stitcher, but it is useless for me. What is more, I suspect that once I get the hang of it, this would be largely superfluous.

I see this as wasted money, although the flowers are clearly beautiful.
What a beautiful, well written book. I have been quilting for years yet I learned several new techniques. The flowers are so realistic you would think you could pick them. Instructions are made simple enough for someone who is beginning to learn appliqué, yet there is an abundance of techniques to keep the experienced quilter engaged. Well done!
