    Hearts & Tulips Applique Masterpiece

    Member Price $15.96

    Members Save $3.99

    Regular Price $28.95 $19.95

    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.
