Book review: Patchwork Loves Embroidery


Don't be afraid to mix and match these projects, says Gail Pan about her pretty book, Patchwork Loves Embroidery.  That means that although there are fifteen stated projects in this volume, there are in actuality potentially many more.  Featuring full-sized hand embroidery designs, this book is sure to please embroiderers and quilters who want to merge the two.  Gail Pan is mostly known for her garden-inspired motifs as you can see in the samples below.  


The book covers the basics of hand embroidery: using the correct needle, choosing threads and fabrics, and transferring the designs to fabric.  Then you can select from patchwork and embroidery projects that include wall hangings, table runners, totes, and fabric covers for books or folders.
