Designed with the absolute beginner in mind, Quilting & Applique also serves as an excellent refresher course. This handbook offers the perfect introduction to quilting by hand or machine, with advice on equipment, materials and techniques. Readers will find straightforward instructions, clear step-by-step diagrams, and traceable templates for a variety of patch shapes. All major quilting and applique methods are introduced, including sashiko and kantha quilting. Three simple practice projects are provided for making coasters, a felt needle case, and a classic frame quilt. The book also includes advice on displaying and caring for finished quilts, plus a glossary of quilting terms."
Templates are used to generate all kinds of text, including computer code. The last decade, the use of templates gained a lot of popularity due to the increase of dynamic web applications. Templates are a tool for programmers, and implementations of template engines are most times based on practical experience rather than based on a theoretical background.
This book reveals the mathematical background of templates and shows interesting findings for improving the practical use of templates.
First, a framework to determine the necessary computational power for the template metalanguage is presented. The template metalanguage does not need to be Turing-complete to be useful. A non-Turing-complete metalanguage enforces separation of concerns between the view and model.
Second, syntactical correctness of all languages of the templates and generated code is ensured. This includes the syntactical correctness of the template metalanguage and the output language. Third, case studies show that the achieved goals are applicable in practice. It is even shown that syntactical correctness helps to prevent cross-site scripting attacks in web applications.
The target audience of this book is twofold. The first group exists of researcher interested in the mathematical background of templates. The second group exists of users of templates. This includes designers of template engines on one side and programmers and web designers using templates on the other side
Quilting is a fun activity that explores the creative ability of an individual. If you wish to give a personalized gift to a loved one that has a part of you and have carefully sewed together to create something exclusive in the truest sense of the word for that individual, then making a quilt is just the thing for you. It is often said that quilting is both a skill and an art. While selection of patterns, designs, colors and fabrics to put together a piece will test the artist in you, following the multi-step process is a skill, like no other. This book explores the different facets of quilting and throws light on each step you will need to undertake in the process.
