Appliqué Mastery

Create Your Own Quilt Masterpiece: Processes, Possibilities & Pattern

Appliqué Masteryis the most exciting appliqué book on the market as it gives readers an exclusive peek into the studio of award-winning appliqué master Philippa Naylor.

In this book, Philippa takes quilters on a step-by-step journey through her process of designing a competition appliquéd quilt from start to finish. Stunning full-color photographs will awe and inspire as you learn appliqué techniques from Naylor.

A wide range of appliqué techniques are explored—from the very easy to the very involved—including turned edge, satin stitch, blanket stitch, free-motion raw edge and bias strip. Naylor encourages quilters to break the rules and experiment. She says, “One method is not better than the other. So try them out and use the ones that suit you and your way of working best.”

Appliqué Mastery includes a quilt pattern with detailed instructions so quilters can put the appliqué techniques into practice immediately. Bird by Bird a gorgeous medallion-style quilt includes repeated motifs of flowers, birds, hearts, circles and long swag shapes. The book is structured so it’s perfect for a month-by-month project; individuals and groups can choose to use the structured schedule provided, or set a personal time frame and work at your own pace.

Naylor’s expertise and enthusiasm in Appliqué Mastery will spawn creativity in all quilters.
