The Applique Book

Hi everyone! I know it has been a long time since I've posted here but I just wanted to pop in to let you know about a wonderful new quilting book by Casey York (and tell you a little bit about my quilt that is in the book.) The Applique Book is all about - you guessed it - applique! It includes projects, techniques, and tips for several different applique methods including raw-edge, turned-edge, reverse, bias-tape, and free-form applique. In addition to the 16 projects in the book, Casey includes informative profiles of several modern quilters.

My quilt is Bowls and falls under the free-form applique section. I made a mini-quilt but it could easily be resized to a full size quilt. I combined improv piecing with raw-edge applique to create a design that is easy and (hopefully) fun to make.

To learn more about The Applique Book and to see the other projects in the book, follow along with the blog tour.
