from my bookshelf - applique



For those who like applique, but are not quite sure how to go about it, or just want to learn some tips - this is a very nice book, easy to follow, with clear instructive pictures.

The authors show you how, using and mixing 9 simple blocks, you can achieve quite impressive results and how to tackle curves and those tricky points on the way.













This is a beautiful book, I love it.

Taking an inspiration from Turkish tiles,

projects.
I love the designs, I love the colours,
I want to make it all!

  2. You are obviously not the only one to love these books - the applique one is very expensive on Amazon and the Book Depository and Constantinople is not far behind! I do love the look of the Constantinople book though so am adding it to my wish list - you never know!! xx
