    This is the first worldwide survey of these wonderfully decorative and allied techniques. Native American Seminole clothing, German narrative appliqué, Central Asian camel trappings, American block patchwork ... the uses of quilting, patchwork and appliqué are astonishing. There are three main sections, with over fifty topics: Materials – from wool, flax and linen, cotton and silk to the manufacture of synthetics. Uses – from household items and clothing through the ages to ritual and ceremonial objects such as wedding quilts and banners. Construction – detailed explanations of the many techniques of quilting, patchwork and appliqué found around the world. With over 500 illustrations, a glossary, a bibliography, an index, a guide to collections around the world and advice on how to care for your objects, this is a comprehensive survey of these universally appealing textiles. It will be invaluable to anyone interested in art, craft, decorative objects and interior design. Caroline Crabtree trained as an embroiderer in the UK and is co-author of Beadwork: A World Guide. Christine Shaw has taught patchwork, quilting and dyeing for many years. Her own quilts have been widely exhibited.
