Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Anyone with a desire to master machine applique can do so by taking the time and effort to work through this beautifully organized manual. Hargrave has authored a number of critically acclaimed quilting books, including Heirloom Machine Quilting and From Fabric to Fiber. Machine applique has become more attractive to the home sewer with the advent of modern sewing machines and new fusibles and stabilizers to make the technique more easily mastered. This second edition updates the earlier volume with methods, materials, and techniques that have come to the fore since the first edition was published ten years ago. After an extensive discussion of equipment and supplies recommended for machine applique and of sewing machine maintenance and troubleshooting, Hargrave covers raw-edge techniques like the satin stitch and the blanket stitch as well as invisible machine appliqu on a turned-edge. Close-up step-by-step photos of critical techniques are included. This practical workshop-in-a-book is eminently suitable for both solitary learners and workshop participants and is highly recommended for all public libraries with fabric crafts collections.
