The flowing style and organic motifs of Vicky's original designs hark back to a time when traditional and contemporary tastes were combining for a new (nouveau) look. Use any of the 10 blocks in any of the seven projects to complement or become the basis for a unique style. Designed as hand appliqué work that is easily portable, these patterns can also be fused for quicker results. Projects include fun ideas such as a sachet cover, bolster, and tote, as well as the original bed-size quilt and miniature version, a wallhanging, and table runner. Beginners will learn the basics of appliqué; experienced sewers will appreciate the clear patterns and directions.
