Hearts & Tulips Applique Masterpiece

Hearts & Tulips Applique Masterpiece

The exquisite appliqué mastery of Margaret Docherty returns in this bold, colorful collection of folk art style birds and tulips. Thirty-five different designs can be used for any type or size hand- or machine-appliqué project as well as the featured quilt, giving Hearts and Tulips tremendous versatility and utility. By-the-book quilters and those who prefer to branch out and design their own work will use Hearts and Tulips as both pattern and inspiration. Margaret's original art fits 7' to 8' blocks. All of her designs may be enlarged to fit up to 12' blocks, making the book very versatile. Paying homage in part to Pennsylvania Dutch design, the book will serve as a pattern resource for years to come for appliquérs of all skill levels. As always, Margaret's instructions are clear and concise, allowing quilters of any experience to achieve stunning results. Award-winning quilter and author of two books in the Appliqué Masterpiece series, the famously popular Little Brown Bird and Birds-N-Roses, Dr. Margaret Docherty spends her non-quilting time as a pediatrician in Durham, England, with a husband trained to cook while she quilts.

Customer Reviews

"You will find yourself using these patterns for years to come." — Review by Patti Ives, TAS Newseltter
Tulips are one of the first flowers to greet the warm spring sunshine and Margaret Docherty’s new book “Hearts & Tulips Appliqué Masterpiece” reflects the bright and cheerful colors of tulips in the Spring. You will remember Margaret as the award-winning author of “Little Brown Bird Patterns” and “Birds ‘n’ Roses”. This bold and colorful collection of folk-art style birds, hearts, and tulips takes it’s inspiration from traditional Pennsylvania Dutch folk art. You will find yourself using these patterns for years to come in all kinds of projects. The finished quilt size is 68" x 68" and the 36 full-size 8" block patterns can easily be reduced and enlarged to fit your needs. There are also two other patterns for the border. The quilt featured in the book was done entirely by machine appliqué, but you can also do this using hand appliqué if you would prefer. Margaret has also included a tutorial on machine appliqué; quilt construction, supplies needed, and quilting instructions, including the quilt patterns used in the quilt. --Patti Ives, The Appliqué Society Newsletter, July/August 2010, page 15.

Folk art never goes out of style and gardeners who quilt will love these designs — Review by Connie Krochmal
Overall Rating
"Hearts and Tulips-Appliqué Masterpiece" by Margaret Docherty is the third in the Appliqué Masterpiece series by the author. Gardeners who quilt will love these 42 original designs. Each design has full-size templates, a list of fabrics, and step-by-step instructions for doing the appliqué and embroidery. The author also suggests uses for each block. The featured quilt project uses 36 of the blocks as well as an appliquéd border. Connie Krochmal, BellaOnline's Landscaping Editor (Posted on 10/9/09)

What a wonderful book! I have been searching for one like this for some time and when I finally found it advertised I knew I had to have it. When I received it, I realized that it would definitely be my next project. I can't wait to get started. The illustrations and designs are immeasurable and the quilt is exquisite.
