This practical guide to quilting expert Sylvia Critcher's unique style of work leads you step by step through a variety of raised quilting and embroidery techniques, which are then combined to create contemporary designs. It contains ten sophisticated projects, a comprehensive stitch guide, advice on developing your designs, galleries of inspiring work and all the templates required at actual size.

Over the course of her long and creative career, quilting expert Sylvia Critcher has established her own unique process for combining raised quilt and stitch techniques to create wonderful effects. Sylvia's method features a variety of quilting and raised embroidery techniques including trapunto, Italian quilting, le boutis, French-style cording and English quilting. The book will guide you through the history and context of these traditional techniques and show you how to combine them with the necessary stitches to create Sylvia's distinctive style of work.
