With these innovative, timesaving strategies, it's easier than ever to do! Substituting the machine for handwork, you can stitch the patterns in long, unbroken lines. The results are classic and graceful, as always. Choose from 20 home-decor and clothing projects, including a bedspread, coasters, crib quilt, totes, and jackets. With a pattern dictionary of more than 100 designs for a lifetime of inspiration, this is a gorgeous and practical gift for sewers, quilters, and textile artists. 8 1/2 X 10. 95 color photos , 150 illus.,
