42 Quilts Summer Sale Going on Now!

I'm doing something I've never done before! I'm having a sale! Now until Aug. 25, all books and patterns are 10% Off with Free Shipping!

Earlier this summer I bought a huge stockpile of The Modern Appliqué Workbook and they are looking for a permanent home. I am an avid appliquér, as you know, and I'm happy to share what I know with you!

The Modern Appliqué Workbook has all my appliqué knowledge contained in 136 pages! I put everything I know about appliqué technique - including all the tips and hints you get in my appliqué workshop!
