This is a teaching, learning and exploring book. It is ideal for the beginner who wants to learn about reverse appliqué and needle-turn method, and it is perfect for the more experienced sewer who wishes to develop appliqué skills in a different and inspirational way.

The Beginners Workshop in Reverse Appliqué (page 20) follows a workshop format, using a small sample to take you step by step, by text and illustration, through the reverse appliqué method and needle-turn technique.

Basic skills can be learned and developed through a range of appealing projects that gradually increase in degree of difficulty. The projects explore a variety of ideas that have been inspired by metal-work, with alternative approaches suggested where appropriate.

You can make the principle project, The Garden Gate quilt, by using the pullout pattern at the back of the book. Of , if you prefer to be more original, inspirational illustrations and simple directions are available for creating your own picture and designing your own gate.

'Enchanted Views' (ISBN 1 57120-132-7) was published by C&T Publishing Inc in 2002.
