Reviews of this book:
- Rose Hughes writes "Today's quilts bring back those wonderfully large, graphic designs, and the quilted line has made an incredible transformation. While the stitching of today is beautifully added to create incredible quilts, it's being done in new ways with new threads in order to make its own statement". If you are searching for a new way to express yourself through appliqué then you will learn a lot by reading Fast-Piece Appliqué, Easy, Artful Quilts by Machine. Learn to simplify any design you may have to create one of-a-kind inspired designs. Art theory from color, texture, line, contrast and repetition are touched on as well and a good list of supplies will start you on the path. The quilts in this book are made using the author's Fast-Piece Appliqué method and your sewing machine. Clearly written instructions and photos illustrate the method. The quilts are finished with quilting, dimensional stitching, couching and beading. The 11 projects found in the book consist of three panels each. You have the option of making a single panel, piece them all together as one quilt or make all three panels for a dynamic display. --The Applique Society Newsletter, March/April 2015
