Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for The Modern Appliqué Workshop, a recent Stash Books release by Jenifer Dick!
I’m fortunate to regularly see Jenifer’s work in person, as we are both members of the Kansas City Modern Quilt Guild. It really is gorgeous work and her craftsmanship shines through in her book. These aren’t raw edges, people! Jenifer uses invisible thread for her invisible zigzag appliqué method and if you’ve never tried it, this is the book for you.
It’s that attention to detail I’ll be talking about today.
Many of the quilts in Jenifer’s book feature unique shapes that include sharp points, v-shapes or curves- shapes that add a lot to the quilt, but might make an inexperienced appliquér nervous.
That’s the magic of this book! Jenifer’s quilts are beautifully made and her tips will set you up for success, too. The book has a wonderfully detailed section on working with dull points, sharp points, inner and outer curves and deep v-shapes, including nice large, detailed step-by-step photo instructions. Jenifer is an excellent teacher and that comes through loud and clear in her writing.
Stash Books has offered up a copy of the book! International winners will receive an e-book, US winners receive a hard copy.
To enter, tell me if you’ve ever used invisible thread before. I’ll select a winner on February 26th! This giveaway is now closed. Sherry VF is the randomly selected winner and has been notified. Thanks to all who entered!
Grab a copy of the book online now or order an autographed copy of Modern Appliqué Workbook directly from Jenifer. Be sure to enter the drawings at each of the blog hop stops, where each host has a different chance to win a copy:
