The Quilter's Applique Workshop & Giveaway

I was super excited the other day when I received a copy of The Quilter's Applique Workshop by Kevin Kosbab from Interweave.  It is no secret that I love applique and use it a lot of my projects.  It was so nice to be able to take this on our little family vacation and have some time to go through it.


And can I just say, I am loving it!!!  Kevin Kosbab does such an amazing job with the technical writting, explaining each and every little detail with fabulous illustrations.  There is no way you can get lost and  I learned so much!! The book is broken down into an applique basics section followed by sections on raw-edge, prepared-edge, and needle-turn applique.  I spent a lot of time reading in prepared-edge and needle-turn as I tend to stick mostly to raw-edge applique.


And of course, I couldn't get through the book without adding a few more "to do's" to the list.   First off, these fantastic All Seasons Pillows from the needle-turn section.  They are so stinking cute and of course, some hand sewing practice would be vastly helpful to me, you know, the non-hand binding gal.


And then from the prepared-edge section this stunning counterbalance quilt.  I think this is calling to be a new master bedspread.  And I am so excited to try out some prepared-edge applique, I have never done that but Kevin's instructions seem to make it seem like a piece of cake.  Here is hoping ;)


To see more fabulous reviews of this book, check out the official Book Tour.  You can find all of the links at Kevin's blog here ;)  

Not only was I happy to be able to review this fabulous book but Interweave has graciously offered to giveaway a copy of The Quilters Applique Workshop to one of my readers.  Want to win this fabulous book??  Of course you do.   

To enter for a chance to win simply leave a comment of your take on applique.   It can be as simple as "love it", "never tried it", "excited to learn", or you can share some of your applique experiences.  Whatever you like as long as it is about applique ;)  

The giveaway will be open until Monday the 28th and I will announce a winner on Tuesday morning.  Good Luck and have a Happy Quilting Day ;)

  2. I have experimented with several methods and find that the more I stitch (needle turn) the better I get but still have a long way to go. Recently I have been interested in the use of stabilizers and fusible interfacing's with applique. I think I need some reference points to go beyond my current skill level. Who ever wins the book will be thrilled I am sure and thank you in advance for hosting this give away! Love your work.

  4. Thanks for the opportunity! I've done some needle turn, some prepared edge, and a wee bit of raw edge appliqué. I really enjoy all three, and I'm thrilled that there have been a few really good technique books on the subject recently. Can't wait to get my hands on this one! (Fingers crossed!)

  36. I adore applique and have tried all three techniques. I tend to stick with raw edge because, to me, it is the easiest but the other two look so sharp. Needle turn was easier than I expected but the prepared edge has to be my favorite for a finished look and ease combined. Those pillows are lovely!

    ReplyDelete

  56. Rosemary B here
    Well, this looks like a wonderful book. Wow.
    Thank you so much for offering a book to a lucky winner
    I never thought much about applique. It just looked "harrrrrd" and I was not sure I could be neat and tidy with stitching.
    Last month we had a really nice girl come to our local quilt shop and show us all of her projects. I thought she was there to teach us, but she just spent the hour showing us every single quilt she made since she started sewing..... I was bummed, but she did have some lovely lovely (two recent years of her sewing journey) applique things she made. It was amazing and I think I got bit hard with curiosity and perhaps a push of eagerness to try it. I want to make some applique door banners for my mom and dad's retirement apartment. I think that could be a cool thing. Luckily they do not move until August, so I can finish up my pile of other sewing first. Then I want to make some quilted banners, with applique flowers, birds and other charming designs....
    Boy oh boy, I would love to win this book.
    Best wishes to all entrants.
    Have a fun day Melissa.
    Again, thanks loads for this "giveaway" of such a cool book

    ReplyDelete
  64. Applique intimidates me. I don't have much experience with it. I signed up for a raw-edge applique class and loved it, so I think I will have to just get over being afraid of it and learn more!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I do basic raw edge applique with my machine but would love to learn other techniques. At the moment I am adding applique to a quilt for my Mother, it really does jazz it up!

  71. It's great to have applique amongst my known quilting tricks, though I don't do it as often as piecing.

    ReplyDelete
  72. does felt peices on sock monkeys count as applique? I've never used it on a quilt. this looks exciting!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  74. I really like to machine applique

    ReplyDelete
  75. The speed of machine applique is nice, but I personally love the look and feel of needle turn applique. I have been using this method for a couple of years and I love it so much! I am on block four of a twenty block of the month program with hand applique flowers. This book sounds great! Thanks for the chance to win it!

  97. Applique. Scares the batting right out of me! Lol always afraid that I didn't do it right and the fabric being appliqué will start fraying. There are so many cute things to do with it. This book would be a great starting point. Might have to get it even if I don't win.

    ReplyDelete
  118. Applique is so much fun! You can follow someone else's pattern or make up your own. I have made my own designs and followed patterns. I like both. I also do more raw edge than needle turn but I did make a needle turned hawaiian design for my sister. It was a pillow for her bed. It was fun but took a lot of concentration to turn the fabric as I was sewing it down. I am glad you do lots of different kinds of projects and share those with us. Thanks for your willingness to share. K-

  121. I've always been someone who likes hand sewing, but I don't seem to be able to do a good job of needle turn appliqué. Maybe I don't have the hand skills I used to have.

    ReplyDelete
  145. I am not a fan of applique. That being said ... I am working on a quilt right now with lots of applique. I tend to do the needle-turn by hand method as I don't like the look of the machine done on my quilts. Other peoples quilts seen to look great -- but I prefer the hand done on mine.

    ReplyDelete
  146. I would love the chance to give it the old college try :)

    ReplyDelete
  147. Have done a little but usually avoid it. Would like to change that.

  170. I have done one project with raw edge applique and one with fusible applique, but I would love to learn more about appliqueing.

  171. Mostly I have done it with machine stitching and fuseable. Would love to learn other ways to do it.

  173. Have tried but need more practice to get stitching just on edge and not all over the place ....

  175. Love hand appliqué! Needleturn, with freezer paper or back-basted. Looks like there are some modern ideas for appliqué in the book, great!

  176. I enjoy the hand work very much, but do not do it as much as I would like.

  178. I tried applique once and it was a disaster - so I have been scared to try it again!

  179. I have done a small amount of needle turn applique. I liked the finished blocks, but was so focused on "getting it right" that it took me a very long time. Hopefully, next time I attempt it, I will be more relaxed and enjoy the process.

  181. Applique adds a special touch to projects. I have done a small bit of applique and have other ideas saved in a "to make" binder.

  182. I enjoy it, but have not done a lot. I'd like to do more, but only when I find the right project!

  183. I have little experience with it, and scared of using it for washable projects, which is why I should face my fears, probably! Thank you for the giveaway!

  184. I love the looks of applique but I have a lot of learning to do before I dare to try it again.

  185. Have always admired applique and would love to try it! Thanks for the give away!

  186. As long as it is raw edge applique, I'm a huge fan! ;) I tried needle turn once, and I think I finally got the hang of it in the end, but raw edge applique is just so fast! I really should try something new, though.

  187. I haven't done much applique - yet! Love the lime quilt w/ gray and white appliques.

  188. Intimidated! I need to get over it and learn :)

  189. I love doing it on quilts, and want to do it on kids clothes!

  190. I love appliqué! But I have never attempted it on an actual quilt yet and only use raw edge appliqué. This book looks like a great opportunity to learn the other methods.

  191. I am doing my second trapunto applique quilt. I love applique. Thanks for the chance.

  192. I'd love to give it a try, but a pillow with raw-edge appliqué is as far as I got. I love the quilt on the front page of the book!
