Recently discovered applique and this edition just makes me want to expand on my skills! Would love to download to the Kindle, but need the color illustrations.

Great Information

For my first time applique this book was extremely helpful. I made some pumpkins for a holloween table cloth with info from this book and they came out great. If your a 1st time machine applique, you must read this book. It's my new favorite thing to do.

From projects that demonstrate different stitches and alternative options to incorporating applique into a quilting endeavor, Machine Applique for the Terrified Quilter discusses patterns, applique options, and step-by-step methods. Quilting libraries will find this an important acquisition. Diane C. Donovan California Bookwatch

Machine Applique for the Terrified Quilter

This book is so complete and precise. Sharon covers everything and every question that would arise in learning to applique or learning a new technique of machine applique. The pictures are large and clear and Sharon's written instructions are so easy to follow. She covers everything and I can tell you the end result is wonderful. I highly recommend this book for anyone who loves machine applique and who wants to get the most out of the sewing machine they have purchased.

Machine applique the easy way

I wish I lived closer to Ms. Pederson so I could learn in person from her. She has a GREAT book and the way it is written makes me ready to machine appliqué. Her book starts out like many quilting books --- talking about the tools you need to do it. BUT what her book has that I have never found in any other is a GREAT explanation of machine needle sizes and thread sizes. I now understand it and will keep her book handy for when I forget what she said. (Old age does that to you! hehe) Another thing I have never found in quilting books is something called "The Brooklyn Revolver". As she says it is not a gun but a very handy tool for gluing up many small pieces of appliqué. 21 pages of "get ready to appliqué" instructions begin Ms. Pederson's book and you should read every word if you are a beginner appliqué-er. If you are a more experienced one, then you should read every word because I know you will find a tip or two you didn't know before. There are ten different quilt patterns and each has a paragraph about the quilt before the rest of the instructions are given. The material and cutting lists are clear and easy to follow. The step-by-step instructions for assembling the blocks have graphics to help you visualize what you are creating. Templates are provided although some need to be enlarged. And the assembly and finishing instructions complete the patterns. There are, of course, color photos of each quilts and the finished quilt size is also provided. The final two pages are a resource list and an overview of the author. So, grab a copy and start appliquéing!
