Pink Ribbon Quilts: A Book Because of Breast Cancer
Now that author Mimi Dietrich has five cancer-free years behind her, she has combined her quilt-making talents and her experience with breast cancer to create an inspiring book of quilt projects especially for women-and the people who love them-struggling with the disease. Quilters of all skill levels can create a quilt to brighten a day in the life of a breast-cancer patient, survivor, or care-giver, and join Mimi and thousands of other women in the enduring fight to find a cure. 11 step-by-step projects include a comfort pillow, friendship quilts, and large raffle quilts-all using a pink-ribbon theme or pink fabric. Mimi's personal story reveals how quilting helped in her recovery, and shares her tips on what friends of women with breast cancer can do to help. A portion of the proceeds from Pink Ribbon Quilts will benefit the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

The Artful Ribbon : Beauties in Bloom
When viewing the magnificent floral forms that Candace Kling creates, it's sometimes hard to believe that they are actually pleated, gathered, ruched, and twisted ribbons--not the real thing. Her gorgeous ribbon flowers appear to be extremely intricate and complicated, but her extensive directions and diagrams take the mystery out of recreating everything from roses to pansies to poppies to daffodils. After nearly two decades of researching antique ribbon work, her knowledge of vintage pieces is evident in much of her work and in her finely tuned sense of color. The many photos of vintage ribbon-work flowers, not to mention those of her own artistry, are themselves worth the price of the book.
