The exquisite appliqué mastery of Margaret Docherty returns in this bold, colorful collection of folk art style birds and tulips. Thirty-five different designs can be used for any type or size hand- or machine-appliqué project as well as the featured quilt, giving Hearts and Tulips tremendous versatility and utility. By-the-book quilters and those who prefer to branch out and design their own work will use Hearts and Tulips as both pattern and inspiration. Margaret's original art fits 7' to 8' blocks. All of her designs may be enlarged to fit up to 12' blocks, making the book very versatile. Paying homage in part to Pennsylvania Dutch design, the book will serve as a pattern resource for years to come for appliquérs of all skill levels. As always, Margaret's instructions are clear and concise, allowing quilters of any experience to achieve stunning results. Award-winning quilter and author of two books in the Appliqué Masterpiece series, the famously popular Little Brown Bird and Birds-N-Roses, Dr. Margaret Docherty spends her non-quilting time as a pediatrician in Durham, England, with a husband trained to cook while she quilts.
Minky Mastery takes minky fabric to a new level of artistry. This book is the next generation in piecing and quilting with minky fabric. Minky Mastery takes this creative and somewhat challenging fabric and uses it in a way no one else has imagined. The techniques in this book will allow the beginner quilters to piece with minky and be successful. The expert quilters will fall in love with this fabric all over again. I am so excited to share this technique of piecing minky fabric. This fabric is so much more than backing fabric and baby blankets. The book will show you how to piece with minky in a way you have not thought of before.
Highlights of the Michael C. Carlos Museum Collection of Art of the Ancient Americas
Author: Rebecca Stone-Miller
Publisher: Michael C Carlos Museum
Presents almost 600 works of art from Mesoamerica southward, with emphasis on the lesser-known area of ancient Costa Rica. This catalogue places emphasis on the shamanic experience of transformation into animal selves, since this subject preoccupied artists throughout the ancient Americas.
Winner of the 1987 Pfizer Award of the History of Science Society "A majestic study of a most important spoch of intellectual history."—Brian Pippard, Times Literary Supplement "The authors' use of archival sources hitherto almost untouched gives their story a startling vividness. These volumes are among the finest works produced by historians of physics."—Jed Z. Buchwald, Isis "The authors painstakingly reconstruct the minutiae of laboratory budgets, instrument collections, and student numbers; they disentangle the intrigues of faculty appointments and the professional values those appointments reflected; they explore collegial relationships among physicists; and they document the unending campaign of scientists to wring further support for physics from often reluctant ministries."—R. Steven Turner, Science "Superbly written and exhaustively researched."—Peter Harman, Nature
Features nineteenth-century floral applique quilts, a description of each quilt's historical and botanical influences, and an explanation of women's interest in botany and flower garden designs as reflected in their quilts.
