The book, Bright and Bold Wool Appliqué by Angela Lawrence, provides quilt shop owners and wool appliqué instructors with a large assortment of projects, which can be used for beginning to advanced wool appliqué classes.
Included in the book are preparation tips, Angela’s favorite tools for wool appliqué, fun and innovative wool appliqué projects, complete with assembly instructions, fabric requirements, and design templates. This book is a "must have" for every quilt shop owner to openly display in their shop and maintain in their inventory. The variety of projects bound within, will attract appliqué quilters of all skill levels, who have a variety of tastes, yet share a genuine interest in the colorful world of wool appliqué.
For centuries quilters have created appliqué quilts without the elaborate resources we enjoy today. They did not have the fabrics and notions that are now available, and yet they created beautiful, heirloom appliqué quilts that are still cherished by many today. Surely they must have enjoyed the needleturn appliqué handwork. So now, after years of teaching needleturn appliqué, I have decided to prepare an instructional manual reinforcing the basic techniques that I specifically utilize and endorse in my classes. It is my hope that, through the use of my preferred techniques, I might instill that "love of handwork" in my students as well as the readers of my book.
