Books on Monday – Teach Me to Appliqué

Today we are looking at another appliqué with Pat Sloan’s most recent book – Pat Sloan’s Teach Me to Appliqué: Fusible Applique That’s Soft and Simple. Yes, I do know that someday I need to actually do some appliqué instead of just reading about it and watching video. And, as usual, yes the link below is my Amazon Associate link and if you use it, you help to support this blog.

Let me start out by saying that if I actually decide to do fusible appliqué someday (and that day is getting closer), I will reach for this book first. I think that Pat Sloan’s method is very similar to Sue Nickels’s and Pat Holly’s, but I love Pat Sloan’s directions. Not only were they very clear, but I found them inspiring. Yeah, I know that sounds a little hokey, but I did. Pat also includes some practice patterns, which I may try any day now. Anyway, this book is a two thumbs up.

Here are the contents:

  • Come Stitch with Me
  • Fusible Appliqué (This covers everything I can ever imagine needing to know about this process.)
  • Let’s Go Sew (8 projects – I confess that I will probably never make any of the veggie projects.)
  • Binding by Machine
  • Meet Pat (Are there people who have not heard of Pat?)
  • Acknowledgments

And there you have it. Another appliqué book review.

Quilt on!
