See the world from your sewing table! An Incan sun, burning red and yellow; Mandarin ducks swimming in vivid blue waters; and a crawling lizard from Australasia, done in Aboriginal style: an array of beautiful motifs from around the globe unfold before you, ready for stitching in quilts, embroideries, and more. 25 projects, using a range of different techniques, take their inspiration from the designs, patterns, textures, and color schemes of every continent--even Antarctica! The decorative items include Middle Eastern Christmas stars, a Mediterranean sailing boat, a Celtic herb pillow, Scandinavian table ribbons, and an African zebra quilt. The pattern-library pages are packed with images, and hints for developing patterns will help you create your own fabulous designs. 8 1/8 X 11 1/2. All in Color
