Blog Tour & Give-Away! The Modern Applique Workbook!

badge1
***NOTE!***  This drawing has ended!  Congrats to our winner, Wendy Buchanan!

Good morning Everyone!
 
Today is the day I’ve been waiting for and very excited about.

MY EDITOR, Jenifer Dick is also a widely published author herself, and when she asked me to kick off her Modern Applique Workbook Blog Tour, how could I say anything but YES!!

You can find Jenifer’s website at 42Quilts.com.
 
Through working with her over the past 6 years I have come to rely on her attention to detail and her vision for where a quality book needs to go ---and with her new book, you will find yourself open to a whole new direction adding applique by machine to modern quilts.
 
Wait a minute --- MODERN?  APPLIQUE?  I know a lot of us think that “modern” means stark empty spaces and linear designs with terms like "LOW VOLUME" or "NEGATIVE SPACE"  and applique sounds rather “traditional”.

It’s not the definition of applique that is modern, it’s all in the SHAPES and the feel of the quilt!
 
Capture
 
Shapes and colors and texture ---curves add a deliciousness to modern quilts!
 
And let’s face it – sometimes appliqueing a shape is a lot more freeing than trying to "piece in" that curve…..
 
With these easy techniques and a few readily found supplies, you will find machine applique a breeze and a delight.  Jenifer will guide you through the products she uses the most for the best results possible, step by step.
 
Chances are you probably have some of these items already on hand.  Freezer paper?  Got it! Glue stick? You betcha! Spray starch?  All right here!

All you need is the book and you are ready to discover how fun machine applique can be.
 
The projects are a delight ---

Baskets!
 
This is probably my favorite little ditty in the book!  I love the free placement of the baskets on the blocks, and the colors are terrific….and the quilting adds so much texture!
 
Capture3
 
Love the look of these “Geese” on a wall quilt in lieu of a headboard.
 
Big bold shapes…so modern! You can do this!
 
Capture5
Birds!
 
Simple shapes in bold colors make a wonderful focal point in this little wall quilt.
 
Capture6
 
Easy shapes become trees!
 
Capture7
 
I love the appliqued X’s that go “Outside the box” on this quilt in blues and greys.
 
Capture8
 
Fishes and waves!
 
I love the beautiful photography in the photos – the book is full of GREAT shots to inspire.
 
Tings that cat my eye?  The mouthwatering cut citrus the beautiful green goblet with the blue beverage in it ---and the quilt is such a great focal piece!
 
Capture9
 
Jenifer Dick is the author of 4 quilt books from traditional to modern –and yes, there is a lot of cross-over in this book that will apply to any quilter’s desire to learn better, easier ways to do applique.

I’m so happy that Jenifer asked me to participate in this blog hop!

  155. This book looks like applique work is a safe road to go on to take a break from piecing. I have 2 wallhangings that I did, turned out great.
    I would like to win this book, but I will eventually purchase it if I don't win.

  165. Bonnie,
    Question, do you travel with your sewing mc? Some have said you don't and I remember seeing your carry on luggage packed. I am going to be on a trip for 8 days while husband is in conference and considering taking my 211.

    Oh I love the Modern Applique Workbook!

I love the pink birds and the "fishes and waves" quilt! Oh, and the tree one with the cat in front of it! Thanks for the chance to win!

    Recently, I took an applique workshop because I always thought that piecing was easier. This book makes it look like applique is easier than piecing. I suppose it is when it comes to curved lines. It would be cool to win a copy of this new book. Thanks!

  183. I've always thought that applique lent itself very well to modern quilting and have been surprised to see so few modern applique quilts over the last few years. Perhaps that is starting to change though. Thank you for a wonderful giveaway. kcarlson1152[at]hotmail.com
