A fresh take on quilting and applique! Kevin Kosbab shows quilters that not only is applique fun and easy to do, it can open up a world of design possibilities. The Quilter's Applique Workshop teaches you everything you need to know to create applique-both as embellishment and as the focus of projects. The book is divided into three sections that each explores a basic applique approach: raw-edge, prepared-edge, and needle-turn applique. Each section includes detailed instructions, tips, and illustrations. Twelve home-decor projects, including bed quilts, wall quilts, table runners/toppers, and pillows, illustrate the techniques and allow you to explore more specialized methods such as broderie perse, felt applique, and bias-tape applique. The Quilter's Applique Workshop gives you the tools to mix and match applique techniques and create any design you can imagine.
