As I say in The Quilter’s Appliqué Workshop, I encourage you to find the tools and supplies that work best for you personally—try what other people suggest, but decide for yourself.
Appliqué is fun and easy to do, and it opens up a world of design possibilities. The Quilter's Appliqué Workshop: Timeless Techniques for Modern Designs teaches you everything you need to know to create appliqué—both as embellishment and as the focus of projects. Instructions for hand and machine techniques are detailed for three main working methods:
- Raw-edge appliqué
- Prepared-edge appliqué
- Needle-turn appliqué
12 fun, inspiring projects put the techniques to use.
Quilting Daily flashes back today to this interview with me from a few years back.
How cool is that spine? I have a special place in my heart for a well-designed spine (we’re talking book spines here, though I suppose non-scoliotic people spines are nice, too). The byline and the publisher’s logo being slotted into the colored patches of the quilt from the front cover pleases me to no end.
