A brief history of the simple, but powerful design of the cross, with more than 20 patterns for appliqué.
Throughout the ages many cultures have developed their own designs to depict the cross. A symbol of both suffering and victory, the cross can be used to create a powerful, meaningful image on functional and decorative pieces in the church, home and office. In Crosses of Many Cultures, Joyce Mori provides historical explanations along with easy-to-understand instructions and line drawings for over twenty international cross designs for appliqué. Writing for the beginner and intermediate levels, Mori explains several appliqué techniques, from hand and machine sewing methods to no-sewing techniques. The versatility of these designs is evident in the wide array of suggested projects which include wall quilts, banners, church linens and vestments, table runners, place mats, apron fronts, and door-toppers.
