    Applique made easy, no enlarging needed

    I have always loved the look of the Rose of Sharon block but thought all the hand applique was too much to do. In reading this book, I find that Sharon Pederson shows a way to do applique by machine. You could, of course, do hand applique but if you are like me, this book will make the applique process a bit easier.

    Using a SMALL needle and monofilament thread, you simply zigzag around the edge. This block is also a quilt as you go block and Ms. Pederson tells you how to add ANY SIZE sashing. I may never quilt a whole quilt again!

    Using fusible web and only three shapes of various sizes, you can create the blocks shown in this book. A ten-page how-to section describes the fusing, cutting and sewing process. The actual pattern gives the materials you will need and what to cut out of it. The steps for cutting the side and end triangles are also listed and graphics show how the quilt should be laid out. The templates are included and do NOT have to be enlarged. The only enlargement needed is IF you want a guide to place the pieces exactly as shown.

    The rest of the book is dedicated to one block per page shown on ¾ of the page. Cutting and stitching order take up the other quarter of the page. AND be sure to look at the back of the quilt. Variegated thread was used and it gives you the look of another quilt all by itself. There are also note cards available with the blocks on them. Nicely sized at 5" x 5" and blank so you can send whatever message you want, they only cost $11.99 for a dozen.
