She even made the cover! Look right there in the center.
So it seemed only natural that we’d reciprocate and help to get the word out about The Modern Applique Workbook. This is the final day of the blog tour so perhaps you’ve heard the buzz about the book. It’s a keeper.
It’s as if someone said, “Let’s introduce applique to a whole new batch of quilters,” and Jenifer answered the call. Her easy writing and brief, crystal-clear instructions will guide you to successful, enjoyable applique whether or not you consider yourself a “modern” quiltmaker.
And Jenifer isn’t married to only one applique method. In addition to invisible machine applique, she offers options for using different stitches and different thread to give your applique a one-of-a-kind look if that’s what you want. Two interesting variations are pictured above.
The 11 projects come only after Jenifer has guided you to make a practice block. The projects are decidedly modern, i.e. their shapes are clean and simple, solids play a major role, and they have wide open negative space for lots of great quilting.
The quilting itself is a reason to check out The Modern Applique Workbook. The well-known Angela Walters lent her quilting expertise to these designs and they’re richer for it. You’ll find plenty of fresh ideas for quilting in these pages.
Do check out these other great bloggers who were also part of this blog tour. You’ll find all sorts of interesting ideas.
