From celebrated artist Lora S. Irish comes a treasure trove of 101 small and beautiful patterns for crafters of all mediums. Perfect for wood carving, woodburning, painting, quilting, and more, the patternsĀ are provided in two detailed varieties: a line drawing for transferring and a shaded variety for illustrating depth and shadow. For new carvers, Irish demonstrates the whole carving process from start to finish with a charming Country Apple Quilt Square project. She also explains the tools you'll need, the appropriate woods to use, and how to achieve the appropriate levels of depth in a relief carving.
