Another Book of Applique Patterns

The last time I was in Joann's, I had a coupon that was burning a hole in my pocket. Finding something to buy that isn't on sale (can't use coupons on sale items) is a formidable task sometimes since there are always so many sale items. Generally, I check out the book section to see if there is a new book that wants to come live at my house. That is another story since the way they have the books displayed is a challenge sometimes, too. It is easy to knock something down when you pick something else up. (Even if I complain a little, I love Joann's for lots of things!) I saw this book and leafed through it - it came home with me.
Some really nice patterns that can be reduced, enlarged or used as is. Applique is and always has been probably my favorite part of quilting.

Love the motif on the right. I can see if in batiks, brights, Aunt Grace, etc. Great patterns - great book. (Click to enlarge)
