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.
