I have a beautiful book to show you this month. In the introduction, Cindy tells us how she first became attracted to historical botanical prints, with their “marriage of beauty and scientific accuracy.” She continues, “I continue to be inspired by botanical art and my own garden. Creating simple appliqué and pieced designs of flowers and plants has become one of my favorite pastimes.” A combination of appliqué and piecing creates the most beautiful quilts IMO. This book presents five such quilts with detailed instructions on how to make them.
The author also provides fantastic illustrated appliqué instruction for both needle-turn hand appliqué and fusible machine appliqué… take your pick! There is also very good basic information on selecting fabric, rotary cutting, machine piecing, pressing, adding borders, and binding your quilt. Aren’t they gorgeous?
Cindy Lammon has a love of fabric, pattern, and design that's fueled her passion for quilting for over 28 years. She enjoys machine piecing and machine quilting, but she also loves hand quilting and hand applique.
Cindy teaches beginning quiltmaking and machine-quilting classes, and also lectures for quilt guilds. In addition to quilting, she loves to read, cook, decorate, and garden. Her future pursuit is to share these passions with her grandchildren!
