Four delightful quilts—one each for spring, summer, fall, and winter—celebrate the changing of the seasons. With each quilt featuring little children enjoying the pleasures of the season, this unique combination of appliqué and embroidery is showcased in each pattern with colorful, close-up photography, so that they can be seen in amazing detail. Step-by-step instructions accompany each quilt, and extensive introductory chapters examine the artist’s thoughts on technique. A template pack, shrink-wrapped with the book, is included as are full-size patterns for each quilt, which can be directly transferred to fabric.
