America's Best Cross Stitch (Better Homes and Gardens)

BH&G has been around since forever and they have consistently published the finest publications for the needle artist. I've always thought they well understood that cross-stitch was a classic needle art and worked to preserve this heritage. This book does not disappoint. Published in 1988, 22 years ago, it is still fresh as when issued. The motifs are charming and in some cases challenging. Check out the unusual headboard and bed skirt on page 122 or the Della Robbia Christmas Tablecloth on page 136. These pieces are already family heirlooms somewhere. There is much more in this book and they do break things down so that stitchers of all levels can create beautiful pieces for all occasions or inclinations. It's not one to be missed. It is a classic.

Projects in this volume include traditional samplers, framed pieces, contemporary motifs, afghans, florals, door hangers, pillows, coasters, table linens and napkin rings, picture frames, birth samplers, tags, pouches, nameplates, stockings and more.

Most of the patterns can be stitched by beginner to intermediate stitchers and do not involve specialty stitches. There are some nice samplers, a really cool nautical alphabet design, and a cute alphabet pattern for children.
