Beautiful Detailed Applique! — Review by Patty
Overall Rating
Beautiful detailed applique and embroidery are combined into these 8 nature design wallhangings. They also could be combined into a small quilt, which is what I hope to do with them. You can tell by the detail she has put into her designs that the designer was previously a scientist. (Posted on 3/12/15)
The perfect antidote for the winter blahs. — Review by Connie Krochmal
Overall Rating
By Zena Thorpe, this title is sure to appeal to flower and animal lovers everywhere. Realistic looking appliquéd flowers, plants and animals with embroidered highlights bring garden scenes alive. These projects would be a perfect antidote for the winter blahs.

The book features eight thrilling appliqué designs for miniature wall hangings, 9 ¾ x 9 ¾ inch. There are eight different seasonal mini quilt patterns in all. These include a red breasted robin perched on a sprig of holly. At harvest time, there's a wild mouse in a wheat field munching on grain. Bumblebees, butterflies, a wren, a hedgehog, and a dragon fly also make appearances on some of the designs.

For each beautiful design, there is a full-size, ready to copy template, and step-by-step, easy to follow instructions for the quilt. Some prior quilting and appliqué experience is helpful since these scenes feature very small appliqué pieces and intricate embroidery. (Posted on 10/20/14)
Classic Zena Thorpe — Review by Kathie
Overall Rating
Zena Thorpe is well-known for her beautiful appliqué designs and workmanship and deservedly so. The patterns in this book show why. Her embroidery adds delicate detail to appealing designs while the background quilting, such as basket weave and trellis, lend another layer to beautiful blocks. My favorite is Harvest Time.
