    This review is from: Darling Little Dogs: Thirty-Five Different Small Dog Breeds For Applique (Paperback)

    DARLING LITTLE DOGS contains 35 small dog breeds for you to appliqué. Each of Ms. Ashton’s books is autographed if they are purchase through her website – a special touch that you don’t often get unless you can attend a book signing. Since I don’t get to many book signings, this makes the book extra special to me. The 52 page book contains so much information to help you in your appliqué/quilting process; it is hard to know where to begin but since they are widely available through most quilt stores you won’t have a problem obtaining a copy.

    The inside front, inside back and the back cover show three quilts that could be made with these appliqués. Then there is a table of contents so you don’t have to hunt through the book to find your “little pal”. (Check the website for a full listing of the breeds included in this book). The next two pages contain suggestions on how to embroider the eyes which I was glad to see as animals eyes can say so much (if you are a pet lover, you know what I mean) and other details about the appliqué process. Lots of colorful graphics are shown as well which give you more ideas on how to put the appliqués together.

    The appliqués are full-sized so you don’t need to run out to the copy shop to start your project. Besides, using these patterns for appliqué, I can see more uses such as painting or stain glass templates. There are eight projects ranging from wall hangings to lap quilts to bed sized quilts and, of course, no bed is complete without a matching pillow.

    Instructions on how to transfer the patterns, do needleturn appliqué and Prairie Points to add a cute finish to your project are also included in this very informative and all-inclusive book. When you order from http://www.ashtonpub.com/index.htm, you get a little extra something in your order. It could be a bit of Steam-A-Seam to try or maybe a single pattern or maybe a note card printed with one of Ms. Ashton’s appliqués. Whatever it is, you can be sure you will be able to put it to good use. Be sure to check the site as you might just find a free pattern or two as well.

    If you are a lover of the small breeds of dogs or have a friend or family member that is, then DARLING LITTLE DOGS is a great book to get for your own use or to receive as a gift

    I had been looking for a book like this for years, and this one didn’t disappoint. The applique’s are just right for the work I want to do. The drawings are fine enough to recognize each breed and simple enough to make them very adaptable to any project. And they’s not “cutsie” so you can use them for a large range of projects. The author included great product suggestions and directions. It would be difficult to imagine how Ashton could have done a better job. I also have her book on large dog appliques which is just as great. This author just leaves us wanting more. Got horses? Woodland Critters? If you do applique and want design help, if the topic is one Ashton covers, get the book.
