For the last stop on the blog tour, I share lots of tips for appliqué on Quilting Daily.
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.

This one's a keeper.
Today on the blog tour I crash my very own mother’s blog...when it comes to appliqué, the apple didn’t fall far from the tree, but it sure took its time to fall!
Generation Q Magazine reviews the book on their site today, along with a goofy photo and personal details uncovered by roving reporter Melissa Thompson Maher. She points out that the projects aren’t the only things to like in the book:
It’s classic Kevin. His urbane sense of humor oozes off the pages right from the start.

I used to be afraid of applique because the first time I tried it, I didn’t know the right tools to help me along the way; my poor little leaves were so frayed and my stitches were all over the place! If only I had this book back then to ease my fears. . . . Kevin Kosbab really covers everything in this book, and makes applique very user-friendly and fun to do!Jenna of Connecting Threads
