Who can resist Sue Garman's "Ladies of the Sea"? Each of twelve patterns includes either two appliqued ships or one appliqued border and a pieced cornerstone compass. The patterns have very detailed instructions, as well as the history behind each of the fabulous "Ladies." This grand quilt is one that will be treasured by generations to come. If you are intimidated by the amount of applique, just remember Sue's admonishment: "no matter how much applique there is in any block or border, it is always done one piece at a time - and there is no doubt that this quilt is worth the time and effort you will put into finishing it!"
