Hello!  I'm new to the Quilting Arts world, but I've been hand quilting for many years.  I have the urge to do more artistic pieces.  I have done some beading, but that's it.  Can anyone suggest a good book for me to start with  that has some basic types of embellishments and ideas?  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

There are lots of excellent books - and I have most of them! However, my two favourites are "Embellishing with Anything" by Gladys Love and "Fabric Embellishing - the basics and beyond" by Ruth Chandler, Liz Kettle, Heather Thomas and Lauren Vlcek.
