Easy Applique Blocks
Kay Mackenzie’s newest book will be shipping to quilt shops in early March.
This library of 50 fun, fresh designs is ready and waiting for the appliqué enthusiast. You’ll find flowers, baskets, birds, animals, fruits, teapots, hearts, and a whole variety of what can only be described as offbeat and unique designs, at your fingertips! Some of the blocks recall traditional appliqué motifs, while others are modern, fun, or whimsical in nature. Something for everyone, with big, easy-to-sew pieces.
Use your own favorite method, or learn a new one as Kay shares her tips for three kinds of appliqué: freezer-paper-on-top, back-basting, and machine appliqué.
CD included! Enjoy browsing through the book, then use the CD with your computer to print out the blocks you’ve selected in the size you want. The CD includes all 50 designs in five sizes each, plus reversed versions for back-basting or machine appliqué.
