Folk Quilt Appliqué combines a very popular, quirky folk style with simple but effective quilt-making and appliqué techniques for hand and machine work. It features 20 irresistible projects from small and quick table mats, bags and purses, to attention-grabbing hangings and quilts. As Clare Kingslake says in the introduction, ‘Appliqué is very forgiving and you will be amazed and pleased at what you can achieve. Keep a healthy balance between perfection and slapdash and above all enjoy what you create’.
Drawing on a palette of soft country colours, Clare has created a project collection to brighten up your home all through the year. Each theme has a range of lovely items to suit all ability levels. The ‘Appliqué Focus’ feature highlights the wide variety of appliqué techniques included, with tips throughout for working by hand or machine according to your preference. At the back of the book the techniques section describes all the hand and machine skills needed for the projects, with emphasis on different types of appliqué, including needle turn and using freezer paper, templates and fusible web. Also provided is a set of templates and illustrated step-by-step instructions to help you to use felt, cotton fabric and stitches to achieve brilliant results.
