Janice Vaine has brought the art of Baltimore Album Quilts to a whole new level – and in doing so, a whole new audience! I had the pleasure of seeing her quilts in person when they were being photographed for her new book “The Art of Elegant Hand Embroidery”. The details added to her appliques with touches of embroidery are breath-taking! Each block is an individual work of art that is created by combining a wealth of techniques – many that I have never seen! Using fabric as her canvas, she has created true museum quality heirlooms – and shares these techniques with you!
Item #L11265 Retail $34.95
The book includes a C.D. with lay outs for over 100 blocks – a book that deserves an honored place in every quilter’s library. But some of the blocks are over-sized and some quilters don’t like to use computers, so they have printed full size sheets of every block as a companion. And, seriously, if you are going to devote the hours required to make an heirloom, why not give yourself the tools you need!
