Give & Take Fabric Appliqué

Daphne Greig and Susan Purney Mark

AQS: $24.95

I love the possibilities of this simple concept – using a patchwork block, tracing the design onto fusible web, fusing on fabric, cutting the shapes apart and using them in two blocks as a negative and positive. After explaining the concept, Daphne Greig and Susan Purney Mark get you started with the complex New York Beauty block. The book includes 12 different projects and templates and can be adapted to other patterns of your choosing. The authors note that the concept is great for fat quarters and guild challenges. This is a fun technique to add to your toolbox.

Look for the book at your favorite quilt shop or book retailer. Here’s a link to Amazon if you would like to learn more about the book.
