Review of Clever Banners, Panels & Postcards — Review by The Appliqué Society, Patti Ives
Overall Rating
As quilters we all save the bits of fabric and batting left over from making our quilts. Mary Mayne found an excellent use for these scraps…she turns them into whimsical gifts, decorative banners, wallhangings and postcard quilts. The instructions in this book are well illustrated with plenty of close-up photographs. You will find a step-by-step guide to sewing mini-panels along with directions to create any of the eight charming wallhangings found in the book. Inspiration abounds in this book with over 60 full-size appliqué patterns plus a folk art alphabet to personalize your work. If you are looking for some quick and heartfelt gifts, this is the book you will use time and time again. (Posted on 3/20/08)

Mary Mayne’s "Clever Banners, Panels & Postcards" is a winner. It tells how to use over sixty appliqué patterns and a folk art alphabet to personalize work, pairing projects for sewing up mini-panels with tips on turning them into wallhangings, quilts, banners, and more. An excellent, original, and creative survey which goes beyond the original quilt guide. Review Source: Midwest Book Review, California Bookwatch, December, 2006 (Posted on 5/23/07)
