Compiled and organized by needlecraft expert Jodie Davis (with the assistance of her step-mother Jayne Davis, who is a life-time practitioner of the needle arts), "Quilting With Jodie In Cotton Country" offers sixteen quilting and home-decorating projects that even the most novice needlecrafter can accomplish in their own sewing room. This primer on quilting skills includes quick-sew techniques such as rotary cutting, strip piecing, fusing, raw-edge applique, curve-and-pleat piecing, cut-and-fuse applique, the sew-turn-stuff applique dimension technique, and more. Enhanced with the inclusion of period photographs, simple recipes, history notes, anecdotes, mottos, and a song, "Quilting With Jodie In Cotton Country" is a fun and informative "how to" resource for developing quilting skills and techniques, making it strongly recommended for personal and community library Quilting & Needlecraft instructional reference collections.
