|By Linda M Poole. Woodland imps dance in the moonlight, clever elves tiptoe through the flowers, and a cute pixie flirts from her Corvette. It is all part of Linda M. Poole's world of Quilted Fairie Tales. Linda provides eleven basic 'fairie' appliqué patterns, but the fairy tale does not end there. Appliqué enthusiasts will delight inbringing these fanciful patterns to life with stories of their own. The author has also provided a lot of extra prop patterns to accompany the fairies on theirjourneys. Not so long ago, not too far away, the Quilted Fairie Tales began - on the Internet. Wizard Linda (the author) sent forth a call for quilters to joinher on her magical mission - to create fairies in fabric, accompanied by fanciful tales. The call was answered, and a number of those quilts and stories are included in the book. Several of these delightful quilts with their stories are now part of the 'Quilted Fairie Tales' exhibit of 50 pieces, which debuted at the AQS Quilt Exposition in Nashville. The traveling exhibit has a busy schedule ahead. For those who love fairies, storytelling, embellishing, appliquéing, and quilting, this charming collection of patterns is perfect. |
