Patchwork AVERIL COLBY is the foremost authority on the technique, design and history of Patchwork. Here she has produced the definitive work on the subject. The book will appeal to a wide circle of needlewomen on account of its enchanting photographs and on account too of the fresh historical information which it gives about this traditional household craft. The book's chief aim, however, is the essentially practical one of helping workers to design and make their own Patchwork. To Miss Colby the craft is a living one and it is a part of her purpose to encourage its growth along the best lines of contemporary taste. She has therefore supplied full and easily understood working instructions on the practical aspects of Patchwork: on materials, tools and equipment, templates, color and design, lining and finishing and applied work; and about the patches themselves, whether diamond, hexagonal, shell or of other shapes. These written instructions are expanded and clarified by more than 200 photographs, drawings and diagrams. Patchwork, like embroidery, is beginning to share in the revival of creative needlework in general. This book, as beautiful in its illustrations as it is helpful in its instructions, will give an additional stimulus to that revival.
