As I sit down to start embroidering my seam coverings for Audrey's block, I wanted to share this little gem of a book. It is the one I have used the most out of all the books I have on the subject.
Now, if you have Carole Sample's book, the Quilt Savvy book by Joan Waldman or Marsha Michler's book -- all three of them have many more seam treatment variations than this pink little gem.
What makes this book worth it's weight in gold are the four plastic, see-through templates that come with it. Now, I own Carole Sample's templates as well -- but sometimes they are more complicated than I need and there are too many for me.
Here's a pic of all four templates -- I use a mechanical pencil to make my markings and because it's see-through, I can line up on the seam perfectly. It's much quicker and easier to use than tiger tape. I have also used them for spacing on other embroidery projects, not just crazy quilting. The two templates I most frequently use are the 3/16" grid and the feather stitch grid.
This book was copyrighted in 2002 by Jukebox Quilts and is still available to order. It's a little pricey at $24.95. After all, it's only a plastic bound, self-published book. Having said that, it's the first book I go to in my stash, the one that stays in my CQ travel bag and I would be absolutely lost without it. IMHO, it's worth every penny.
