My turn!

Congrats to Janet, she won the book!

Welcome to the Modern Applique Workbook Blog Tour!


I've been fortunate enough to take Jenifer's invisible applique workshop not just once, but two times! We made a different project each class, and she is a fantastic teacher. I'd only tried raw edge applique prior to taking the class, so I was truly a beginner. She has lots of tips and tricks to help you get the cleanest applique for your project.



The instructions in the book are thorough, and it's definitely one I will refer back to again and again. And the photography is beautiful too, always a plus!



The applique projects in this book are fresh and fun. I love the whimsical appeal of some of the shapes.



I'm going to make Kisses in greys and yellows for my cousin Katie, who's having a baby boy! :)
