How many stitchers have drooled over a pattern or design as a giftable idea, only to discover that it calls for many weeks of persistent labor--too long for the occasion? Veteran British specialist Lawther satisfies the need for immediate gratification, although--surprise of surprises-- amounts of time are not quantified. Depending for the most part on the techniques of applique, patchwork, and quilting, she lays out 25 gloriously colored items to copy, separated into six categories of events: birthdays, engagements and weddings, anniversaries, new babies, Christmas celebrations, and welcomes and farewells. Instructions feature all the usual suspects--lists of materials, directions, and color photographs--as well as more extraordinary data, including step-by-step, illustrated how-tos in color photographs, templates, tips, and variations. What will pique most interest? A confetti quilt for newlyweds, cake ribbon for birthdays, and a sashiko quilted retirement card. Barbara Jacobs
