|Accolades for Pieced
"These are some of the most beautiful and realistic pieced flowers
I have ever seen. I have been quilting less than a year and the straight
seamed patterns don't daunt me, the curved and inset seamed patterns
are tempting rather than intimidating. This is a beautiful addition
to your quilting library."
-- A reader from Cedar Crest, NM
"In short, Pieced Flowers
provides quilters with a unique, artistic and sophisticated approach
to piecing flowers that leaves the reader begging for more."
-- A reader from About.com
"Every once in a while there comes a quilt pattern book that
will dramatically change what you're piecing. Pieced
Flowers is one of these books. If you're a quilter with any
love for flowers, you have to get this book and make yourself a fabric
-- A reader from Suite101.com
"What I found most inspiring about the book is the way the author
presents a number of blocks featuring the same flower, but with quite
different results. The fabric choices and block settings are creative
and unusual too."
-- A reader from Thousand Oaks, CA
"(Ruths) intricate piecing methods
are not for timid
piecers, but the results are spectacular."
-- A reader from Longview, WA
"After reading Pieced Flowers,
I really understand why Ruth B. McDowell is considered Americas
most loved instructor of quiltmaking."
-- Diana McClun, Quilt Author, Teacher
"Ruth McDowell's work goes far beyond what we think of when we
use the word piecing. Her clever use of commercial fabrics to achieve
depth, shading and perspective are unparalleled."
