Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 157432862X, Spiral-bound)

Joan shares over 500 patterns from her treasury of stitch combinations and shows you how to add embellishments to base stitches. Some are very basic stitches, including herringbone, stem, chevron, and buttonhole, that were used to make the lines of stitching. Then beads, buttons, lace, French knots, and straight stitches were added to the base stitch to change the look. Motifs, such as fans, circles, and butterflies, are easy to do without marking your fabric. Detailed directions are given for basic embroidery stitches, for both right- and left-hand sequence. Choose from a wide assortment of stitches to work over the seams of your crazy blocks. Your embroidery will take on a whole new dimension after you expose yourself to this panorama of patterns.
