Named one of the 20th century's best American quilts, this truly is an applique masterpiece. In response to a resurgence of interest in this fabulous quilt, the American Quilter's society is proud to publish a colorful revised edition of an earlier book by the same name. Fifty patterns were used to make the 99 exquisite 6 inch by 6 inch blocks, most repeated once - first in bright colors and again in muted. Celebrating the heart, home, and hearth of heritage, updated text and colorful pages showcase the instructions, techniques, stitches, tips, and patterns necessary to help you create this applique heirloom. AUTHORBIO: In 1980, Faye Anderson took her first quilting class and discovered that her love of sewing and background in graphic design could blend beautifully. Since that time, Faye's quilt, My Mother Taught Me To Sew, has been named one of the top twentieth century quilts by a panel of highly-respected quilting experts. Faye conducts workshops and her quilts have won numerous awards. REVIEW: The Midwest Book Review says, "Faye Anderson's Applique Designs My Mother Taught Me To Sew has been revised and includes newly updated text, techniques and stitches. This also includes three new projects along with fifty block patterns with versatile uses, making for a fine expanded new guide.
