Change the way you think of appliqué with this new approach by Linda M. Poole. Rather than using individual fabric pieces for appliqué, Linda shows how to use one piece of fabric and paints to achieve beautiful, artistic, appliquéd quilts. Use the original downloadable pattern to practice along with Linda, then apply this method to any quilt. Painted appliqué is fun, easy, and makes your quilts sing. Linda also shows her pattern quilted in various ways and with a variety of embellishments and extra-special finishing touches. Even if you have never painted before or feel you are not an artist, you will be creating lovely painted appliqué quilts of your own in no time with Linda’s encouraging and thorough instruction.
