Appliqué Quilting

I have been teaching myself to hand appliqué quilt blocks for about five years. Because I plan to use my quilt blocks as book illustrations as well as for a Bible quilt, I am very picky about the quality of my blocks and have re-done every block for my first book, The Creation.

There are websites available that teach the hand appliqué technique of quilting so I don’t plan to re-invent the wheel by writing it all out. I may comment from time to time on how I resolved a particular problem I faced with a given quilt block. Here are a few teaching links to get you started:

I’ll add more posts from time to time showing the approaches that work for me. There are so many different ways to do appliqué.
