loves of sewing, quilting and leather have come together in this book. Leather
offers new textural and tactile experiences for home sewing. The leather itself
inspires designs. Traditional patchwork takes on a new look and feel when stitched
in the lap quilt Navajo Lightning. Appliequé is easy because edges do not
need to be turned under and because sharp points and curves are easily accomplished.
Reverse appliqué and foundation piecing are also easy to accomplish with
leather for the same reasons.
Decorative machine and free-motion quilting require only basic skills to
yield successful results. Lightweight leathers are easily sewn on a home sewing
machine. Suede is primarliy used in this book because the texture and hand are
so appealing. Washable suede and leather are now becoming available, making them
an elegant choice for home-decorating projects. Some care must be taken to work
with the characteristics of leather. This book offers practical tips, clear instructions
and patterns for over a dozen projects. The techniquies for working with seude
can be transfered to projects of your own design inspired by the projects found
