Piec-lique: Curves the New Way

Piec-lique: Curves the New Way

Award-winning quiltmaker Sharon Schamber shares her quiltmaking secrets from her years of professional garment sewing. Her need to produce projects fast and accurately evolved into a new machine technique she calls 'Piec-lique' (pronounced like applique). This method provides the speed and control to make curved piecing fun. There are four different applications of the technique: layered for gently curved seams, inset for enclosed shapes, combined for seams interrupted by other elements, and free-form for spontaneous piecing without templates. Three dozen gorgeous block patterns have been designed or redesigned with simple curved elements. The author's original designs include beautiful flowers, like the simple daisy, charming blue bells, and sophisticated black-eyed Susan. Quiltmakers will also find excellent information on fabric selection and help for figuring yardages.

Now there’s a way to create the look of appliqué when piecing. Quilt designer Sharon Schamber came up with this innovative, award winning way to sew curved seams that requires no pinning. She has written “Piec-lique Curves the New Way.” In this title, she presents 36 breathtaking quilt blocks using this easy, revolutionary method. Among the patterns are many with floral themes, such as blue bells, irises, black-eyed Susan, and daises. There are also patterns for classic quilt favorites like the New York beauty, baskets, and pinwheels. In the introduction, she provides all the basic techniques and details you will need. For each of the 36 blocks, there are easy to follow instructions, patterns, and sample layouts. At the end of the book is a gallery showing quilts made with the piec-lique method.

Review of Piec-lique: Curves the New Way — Review by Anonymous
Overall Rating
Sharon Schamber loves the look of needle-turn appliqué. Problem is, she has some physical problems that make it difficult to do needleturn. So she set about creating a way to achieve those smooth graceful curves that come from appliqué using a machine. Her technique, described in Piec-liqué Curves the New Way, is very interesting and best of all, it works. You can create beautiful curved shapes from piecing that look like appliqué using this fast, accurate, and fun method of simply stitching in the fold. Best of all, no pins are required! There are 36 blocks presented in the book and instructions are very easy to follow. Look for this book at your favorite bookseller.
