Overview

A fresh take on quilting and appliqué!

Kevin Kosbab shows quilters that not only is appliqué fun and easy to do, it can open up a world of design possibilities. The Quilter's Appliqué Workshop teaches you everything you need to know to create appliqué–both as embellishment and as the focus of projects.

The book is divided into three sections that each explores a basic appliqué approach: raw-edge, prepared-edge, and needle-turn appliqué. Each section includes detailed instructions, tips, and illustrations. Twelve home-decor projects, including bed quilts, wall quilts, table runners/toppers, and pillows, illustrate the techniques and allow you to explore more specialized methods such as broderie perse, felt appliqué, and bias-tape appliqué. The Quilter's Appliqué Workshop gives you the tools to mix and match appliqué techniques and create any design you can imagine.

Library Journal
★ 06/01/2014
Appliqué can seem daunting to novice quilters but it's simply the practice of applying one fabric to another whether by sewing or by other means. In this guide, quilter Kosbab explores three basic techniques for sewn appliqué: raw-edge, prepared-edge, and needle-turn. Each section begins with a tutorial explaining basic tools, supplies, and techniques, followed by a series of projects of various sizes. The majority of the quilts feature modern designs—think undulating shapes, soft curves, and bold colors—but a few have an interesting mid-century feel. Kosbab intersperses tips and tricks throughout the text both in sidebars (the one about the "quilt police" is priceless) and within the directions making this a true master class in appliqué. VERDICT With its comprehensive coverage of sewn appliqué techniques and its clear, thorough instruction, this is a book that quilters will want in their libraries. The projects are fantastic and the tutorials are excellent but what makes this book shine is Kosbab's voice, which is wry and funny and encouraging in all the right ways.
From the Publisher

"I pulled up the 'Look Inside' on Amazon, started reading the section on 'Give Applique a Chance,' and honestly, I got chills. Kevin and I could have one brain on the subject of applique hesitation." --All About Applique

"Kevin has covered every last detail of multiple applique techniques and tools in this book." --Cut to Pieces

"It's a comprehensive, diagram-packed book with 12 projects exploring three different techniques of applique: 1) raw edge, 2) what Kevin calls 'prepared edge' and 3) needle-turn. The instructions are clearly written, and have pertinent bits of info woven in, such as best tools for a task or alternate ideas. And it's classic Kevin. His urbane sense of humor oozes off the pages right from the start, where he answers all the classic applique objections, including those of us who whine that we don't have the patience for needle-turn work." --Generation Q

"The Quilter's Applique Workshop: Timeless Techniques for Modern Designs is the kind of craft book I've really come to appreciate: a book that teaches a specific technique in deep detail, with a group of projects designed to give you lots of practice in those techniques." --CraftyPod

"Kevin Kosbab does such an amazing job with the technical writting, explaining each and every little detail with fabulous illustrations. There is no way you can get lost and I learned so much!!" --Happy Quilting

"The instructions are immaculate, with detailed color photography and graphics included. I also love how Kevin Kosbab is giving a little 'why use this technique' section to explain when and why you may want to pick one technique over another." --Felicia's World

"With its comprehensive coverage of sewn applique techniques and its clear, thorough instruction, this is a book that quilters will want in their libraries. The projects are fantastic and the tutorials are excellent but what makes this book shine is Kosbab's voice, which is wry and funny and encouraging in all the right ways." --Library Journal

"It's an impressive handbook of techniques and projects that cover everything you need to know about sewing one piece of fabric onto another." --Portland Modern Quilt Guild
