    A must have for any applique quilter

    The very first thing that caught my eye was the CD that comes with EASY APPLIQUÉ BLOCKS. How wonderful that I can print out my templates to any size I want. Yes, the book says 6, 8, 9, 10 and 12 inch blocks but that doesn't mean I can't make a 7 inch size if I want. That's what creativity is all about! So not only do you have 50 designs in 5 sizes you have 50 designs in ANY size you want.

    The book begins with how to print from the CD. This is very nice for anyone needing help with a computer. For those of use that are computer savvy on our own, it gives us extra tips which are always helpful. You can always learn something new.

    The block library pages show the block in a black and white outline as well as a full color print sitting side-by-side. Of course, you can always use fabrics of your choice but for those of use that need a boost on color suggestions, this is a huge help. The appliqués are simplistic in that there are not a lot of intricate details. Simple and clean designs make beautiful quilts IMHO.

    The appliqué tips section has two suggestions that I have never seen before but makes perfect sense to me. First, if you need glasses, get and use them. If you can't see what you are doing, it won't look good when it is done. Second, be sure to have good light. Again, if you can't see, you won't make good blocks. And don't forget to read the extra tips contained in colored boxes scattered throughout the book.

    How to make appliqués are given in the next section. Of course, as the author says, only a couple of ways are given. There are many more ways to do appliqué. Use what works best for you but if you haven't ever done appliqué, the suggestions given are a perfect way to start.

    Two more sections contain information on how to hand stitch and machine stitch the appliqués. Be sure to read through them for any tips/help you might need. And the final two sections are a gallery of ideas on how to use the appliqués and a bio on the author. This is one book that will remain in my library to use over and over again.
