I have used Beth’s methods in the past projects, using her techniques will give you great results. Her books are very well written with lots of details along with picture illustrations. If you have never tried her techniques, you will not have any problems following the steps. This book has an updated section on thread work to enhance your appliqué which is very well written with details on the types of thread to use, machine settings, even needles to use and the bobbin setting. I love her pep talk on touching your bobbin case. She suggests using a thread stand, which I just started using and it really does improve your results. In this book she does talk about how to use wash away appliqué sheets for the appliqué and thread work processes. The projects in this book are very doable for beginners. Beth place little stories at the end of each chapter about stories in her quilting and the last story is about not necessarily finishing a project but to have fun and to me that is what appliqué is all about. Beginners need to get this book and explore appliqué, it isn’t a scary word!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
