Review of Stitched Raw Edge Applique — Review by Anonymous

The dynamic duo has whipped up another book on their award-winning techniques. Sue and Pat start with the basics of raw-edge appliqué and then expand their lessons to include methods that will have you making quilts to be proud of. The sisters pepper the instructions with their individual tips, “Sue’s Solutions” and “Pat’s Pointers,” and often demonstrate multiple approaches to the methods. Clear, colorful illustrations are large and easy to understand. The authors offer five projects that have their own sense of whimsy. If you haven’t tried raw-edge appliqué, Sue and Pat’s new book will make you excited about trying this non-traditional technique.

Sue Nickels and Pat Holly are two sisters with a passion for machine patchwork and quilting. This book, Stitched Raw Edge Appliqué, explains their favorite technique. Although I have always enjoyed using fusible webbing such as bondaweb, like them I am less than keen on the stiffness that it adds to the fabric, especially when used in large areas. Having worked their way through various appliqué methods, they hit upon using the fusible webbing only around the edges of the appliqué shape and then machine blanket stitching to hold the shape in place. Although the book only contains five projects, it has a really complete section on their technique, along with helpful pointers and answers to “what if” type questions such as how to make sharp points. As they are machine specialists, the book also shows how to use those fancy stitches on your machine to great effect and how to finish your quilt in style. The projects are of birds and trees, both traditional and more modern.

This book would be suitable for a beginner as it is very comprehensive. However, its section on “beyond basics” and edging ideas make it an inspiring read for more experienced quilters, too. Review S.ource: Gillian Cooper, "Popular Patchwork," Summer 2006, Page 37 (Posted on 2/20/07)
