Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

More than a dozen gorgeous applique quilt patterns capture the essence of exotic Turkey — the land of the Grand Bazaar, the spice market, sultans, and palaces. Influenced by the author's love-at-first-sight experience with Turkish Iznik tiles, the applique designs can be mixed and matched to create hundreds of possibilities. At once familiar and exotic, look for your favorite flowers, including Whirling Tulips, Carnations, Glorious Bouquet, Spring Green Wreath, and other floral beauties.

Step-by-step photos of the applique process are a guided tour on your applique journey. Stunningly beautiful quilts come alive with the spice of Turkish influence. Magnificent quilt photos along with close-ups of embellishments and quilting will have you yearning to begin your next project.

Invited to teach quilting and create a quilt exhibit in Ankara, author Linda Poole fell in love with the exquisite marble pillars, stonework, gardens, jewels, pottery, archways — and Iznik tiles. Share her joy of discovery and quilt interpretations of the essence of an ancient and exotic land. Join in her travels as you also enjoy many photos of the country and its art.

Synopsis:

Floral inspired block patterns reflect the beauty and artistry of hand-painted Iznik tiles. Contains 14 applique block patterns. Colorful fabric selections inspire exotic mix-and-match bouquets. Assembling and sewing the flowers into units makes for delightful travel projects. Combine freezer-paper templates and glue-stick applique to create an exciting new look. Detailed photographs and accurate step-by-step illustrations guide you through Linda's applique process. Easy-to-make large-circle and large-oval backgrounds add interest, and showcase the lovely flower arrangements. Levels of expertise vary from the beginner to the more advanced quiltmaker. The 'Garden of Quilts' gallery of finished blocks and wallhangings, features unusual settings, with delightful vases, arched windows, octagon shapes, and scroll-work to frame the exquisite designs.

Synopsis:

Infuenced by Turkish Iznik tiles, the applique designs can be mixed and matched to create hundreds of possibilities. At once familiar and exotic, look for your favorite flowers, including Whirling Tulips, Carnations, Glorious Bouquet, Spring Green Wreath, and others. 8.5 x 11. 128 pages.
