When Embroidery & Patchwork Revised, along with its adorable pocket-sized companion book of embroidery stitches, crossed my desk, I was immediately intrigued. As someone who loves tiny and tedious crafts (Hello, embroidery!), this appealed to me as a way to start making the crossover into the world of quilting without having to take a nosedive into the deep end. I really love Janice's approach to piecing of, "It's okay if the shapes aren't perfect, they are all oversized to accommodate!". It's like she gives the reader permission to mess up on piecing as they focus on getting their embroidery just right.

With clear templates and lovely photos, the antique inspiration is motivating to come up with my own bigger pieces outside of just embroidery embellishments which I'm accustomed to doing.

All in all, this book would be excellent for someone new to either quilting or embroidery, or just as a handy and crisp guide for any level. I can't wait to play around with making fans after reading through this book!
