Mi Amor Legacy Appliqué
AQS Publishing; $24.95
Appliqué fans will appreciate this Baltimore-style album quilt with its personal touches. Margarete Heinisch wanted to make a 25th anniversary quilt for her daughter and son-in-law and include blocks that were significant to their lives. You’ll find cornucopia with a drawing of a church; a block that includes a guitar and a painter’s palette; and an elaborate peacock. While you may not want to recreate this particular quilt, you’ll be able to put some of the techniques you’ll learn to use in your own quilt. These include working with silk flowers, lettering or drawing on your quilt block, and learning a number of embroidery stitches.
