Country Elegance: Cotton and Wool Projects from the Quilted Crow Girls
Leonie Bateman and Deirdre Bond-Abel
Today, just about anything goes when it comes to the fabrics you choose to go in a quilt. Australian shop owners Leonie Bateman and Deirdre Bond-Abel specialize in combining felted wool and reproduction fabrics in their work. I loved the extra dimension that the appliquéd wool pieces added to the work. You will find 12 projects in a variety of sizes for all skill levels. They also include a tutorial for an easy way to cut and appliqué a dogtooth border. I particularly liked “Rhubarb and Custard” with its positive/negative image and the pillow “A Little Bird Told Me” with its bird and flower appliqué on top of a half-square triangle background.
Look for the book at your favorite quilt or book retailer. Here’s a link to Amazon if you would like to learn more about the book.
