5.0 out of 5 stars Another great book from Alex 6 Dec. 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Good close up photography, clear instructions and patterns for quilts to practice your new skills, everything you could wish for to help introduce you to applique by both hand and machine. If you are a left handed sewer the photographs in the hand sewing section feature close up photographs for both left and right handed sewers!

Very disappointed that this kindle book is only black & white despite the cover being shown in full colour on th order. Please shw when the book is only B&W as I certainly would not have purchased this. Total waste f money or me, I want to see images of the quilts in colour.

5.0 out of 5 stars You cant miss with Alex 28 Sept. 2009
By J. Stolarski - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is easy to understand and will be added to the many Alex Anderson books in my quilting library. If you are a beginner or have quilted for a while her patterns are well thought out and I find myself smiling as I am reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! 8 July 2010
By BOOK REVIEW - Published on
If you want to learn hand applique, check out the CD Applique the Piece O' Cake Way by Linda Jenkins and Becky Goldsmith. If you want to learn machine applique, this is your go to reference book. I've tried lots of applique methods before but there was a new technique in the book that knocked my socks off - no messy glue, no cutting away of the background fabric, and perfect shaping.

Alex Anderson's book on applique is just great for the beginner, like me! Complete and clear instructions on how to start a project and complete it! Your choice of hand quilting or by machine with tips and techniques for both methods. I recommend this book for anyone wanting to learn applique.

By SANDRA KAY MCGUIRE - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book is just what I was looking for, it arrived in like new condition just when the seller told me it would.
It was recommend for a class I took on hand appliqué and it gives me step by step of each and every technique I learned plus unexpectedly it contains a number of full sized patterns, I will refer to this book a lot.

By M. A. Sang - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As with all of her books, Alex Anderson has great ideas for the beginner, as well as reminders for the more advanced quilters. She continues to have clear photos of her instructions. I have several of her other books and refer to them often, depending on the skill I want to learn.
