The subtitle for this book is : Texture and Color for Quilters and Embroiderers.
This is a handsome book full of gorgeous and original designs and ideas. Some of the quilt designs require a sewing machine.
It begins with a chapter on:
HAND EMBROIDERY featuring mirror work, embroidery motifs and other embellishments
MACHINE EMBROIDERY, PATCHWORK AND QUILTING with free motion machine embroidery, applique, crazy patchwork, cathedral window patchwork, strip patchwork, tumbling blocks, quilting and inspiration and design
THE PROJECTS with cushion making, wall hangins and framed pictures, presentation and conversation.
Wonderful designs using rich colors that seem to glow even from the page. The designs are unusual and often lavish. A good book for embroiders or quilters.
Embroidery Techniques From East and West was first published in the UK by B T Batsford in 2001. This edition was published in the USA by Trafalgar Square Publishing in Vermont in 2003.
This book did not come with it's dust jacket. I assume it once had one but it is not here now. Except for the missing dust jacket, this book would be in gift quality condition. As it is, it is very good. Very very good.
