Painted Applique: A New Approach

Painted Applique: A New Approach

Some designs are so lovely they deserve to be created in both appliqué and paint. Enhancing a quilt with surface embellishment is enticing and exciting, especially when the effect beautifully mimics another technique. Can't find the fabric you need? Create it with paint! This choice gives the quiltmaker unlimited flexibility in execution. Each of these 15 original design projects may be appliquéd, created with fabric paint, or may combine both fabric and paint techniques. Even up close, you won't be able to tell if a quilt is painted or appliquéd without touching it. Any appliqué technique may be used to assemble individual elements before they are attached to the background; the glue stick/machine appliqué technique is explained. How to use different types of fabric paint is described, making this a multiple-technique and project book.

Painted Applique - Linda Poole — Review by Joanne E
This is going to be a great book. I just took Linda's painted applique class, Butterfly Star, at the AQS show in Des Moines. It was a great class. This is a highly usable technique. We worked on a project from this book. Linda showed us the quits from this book.

I highly recommend this book and the technique. (Posted on 10/7/13)
