Announcing The Modern Applique Workbook!
It's no secret I love applique and always have. When I started quilting, I thought applique was too hard. My feeble attempts at needleturn applique didn't come out looking like I wanted and I hated the look of fusible web - not to mention the fact that it doesn't hold up after multiple washings (but that's a story for another day!).
Then, one day at a guild meeting a guest speaker demonstrated how to use freezer paper to prepare applique shapes. Wow! It was a game-changing day for me! I stopped by the store on the way home from the meeting to buy freezer paper and glue sticks. Since then I've appliqued everything I can think of from traditional album quilts to kitchen forks and spoons! And I'm still appliqueing to this day!
Over the next several weeks join me as I tell you more about my philosophy of applique and show you some of the fun, modern projects from the book. I tend to post on Facebook more than here, so be sure to like my page on FB www.facebook.com/42quilts so you don't miss any of the fun and I post occasionally on Instagram, too at www.instagram.com/jeniferdick.
If you're interested in ordering the book, I'll have it available mid-December at my shop. And I'll be having a giveaway and other fun things going on in January too! I can't wait to share The Modern Applique Workbook with you!
