    The publishes say,

    "Dawn Heese, quilter and author of many books, marks her return to Quiltmania with her second book in which she pays tribute to her favorite techniques and quilts:  the red and green quilts of the mid-19th century, Folk Art and appliqué.
    Each of the 17 projects in this book is a reflection of the style that has always inspired Dawn’s work.  Quilts, table runners, cushions and other needlework of varying difficulty are all illustrated with lovely photos and accompanied by patterns and detailed instructions.
    And as a bonus, Dawn shares her needle turn appliqué, wool appliqué and punch needle techniques!

    As a third-generation seamstress and quilter, Dawn’s passion for quilts began as a child. Although she did not know her great-grandmother, she passed on part of her inheritance through the quilts she left behind. Dawn’s grandmother used these quilts as testimony of life in the past. She taught Dawn the value of each piece of fabric, including burlap bags that were used to transport food, which she treasured for future works. It is this family heritage that has made Dawn the primitive folk artist she is today. The appliqué and quilting by hand are fundamental elements of her work. As owner of her own design company, Linen Closet Design, Dawn’s memories & traditions continue to inspire her work daily, both technically and artistically."
