When Needleplay, Erica Wilson's first book based on her popular television series, was published, readers and reviewers alike cried, "More!" And here it is, More Neeldplay is Erica at her best, brimming over with new ideas that feature bold designs, striking color combinations, and quick execution. More Needleplay gives full instructions for making articles ranging from a Nantucket harpooner's shirt and English smocks to a set of Revolutionary chessmen featuring George III and Queen Charlotte opposing George and Martha Washington and, for pawns, British soldiers in scarlet and Continentals in blue. The striking designs in the book are derived form Chinese robes, Indian baskets, medieval tapestries, Meissen china, and old herbals, to mention a few. Techniques include such innovations as quiltpoint, plaidpoint, mock weaving, three-dimensional patchwork, and shadow quilting, as well as modern adaptations of Victorian raised wool work, Elizabethan black-and-gold work, and Scandinavian pulled work. Ever-inventive, Erica Wilson proves once more that needlework should always be needleplay.
