When you think applique, do you think there is only one way to do it? If so, you need to get Kim Diehl’s Simple Applique book. She lists invisible machine, invisible machine with Trapunto, needle-turned, fusion and fusible as types/ways to do applique. The book starts with an introduction and then goes on to explain how to prepare fabric for appliqueing. Fray Check and registration marks are two of the techniques she talks about. There are tips set off in a beige box so be sure to read those. Freezer paper is used for invisible machine applique. Batting and liquid basting glue is used for Trapunto. Thimbles are suggested for needle turned applique. Sharp scissors are needed to remove extra fabric from the back of the appliques. Fusion applique is Kim’s term for applique done using various techniques together. And fusible applique is done with HeatNBond lite. By the time you finish reading this book, you will now be ready to tackle the 52” quilt pattern in the book.
