In A New Dimension in Wool Appliqué-Baltimore Album Style, the author Deborah Gale Tirico combines her love of Baltimore Album era appliqué with her signature style of wool appliqué to make table rugs, pillows, and small projects such as a pincushion and sewing kit. Her first book, Gorgeous Wool Appliqué, introduced quilters to her method of felted wool appliqué. The designs in this book honor the antebellum style of Baltimore Album quilts with a modern, unique touch embracing bold colors, black backgrounds, matching wool threads, and occasionally some embroidery or bead and braid embellishments.

In the Project section, some projects include background historical information – all have a difficulty rating, illustrated instructions, and patterns. The Refresh Me section reviews basic felted wool skills including the use of freezer paper and the author’s signature slanted-needle technique which gives a dimensional look to appliqué. Other sections include an illustrated Stitching Glossary for embroidery stitches, a pull-out section at the back of the book for full-size patterns, and Pattern Pieces Pages showing how pieces overlap. The author encourages basting, a light touch and stab-stitch motion with appliqué, and careful following of the placement guides. I am eager to add A New Dimension in Wool Appliqué-Baltimore Album Style to my quilt library to accompany Gorgeous Wool Appliqué, and as a unique addition to my other books on appliqué and working with felted wool.
