I would love to learn how to do applique. Do you have a book suggestion that you found helpful?

Oh, that's a great question! I was looking this weekend for an applique book. I looked at the library, Amazon, and one of the craft stores. I never did get one, but I'm still on the hunt for one.

Sandi, there are different ways to applique, hence different books. One I liked (I love needle-turn, and do not like fusible and satin stitch) is by Robyn Pandolph http://www.amazon.com/Needleturn-Applique-Made-Robyn-Pandolph/dp/18... she covers the six methods.
Here are a lot of books listed - check your local library to see if you can borrow some, before you buy

Try the different methods to see which you like best. I like needleturn, partly because I'm oldfashioned :) and it's easy to take along or pick up and put down. Any applique by machine is not portable. But everyone has their own likes and dislikes. Also, if there is a quilt shop near you, ask if they will be running an applique class, and if it would cover all the bases. I know Lizzie and Pat? have taken classes. I learn easily enough from books and pictures, so I have not taken any classes (plus being 35 minutes drive away from the nearest LQS and with the cost of gas being well over $5/gallon up here, I try not to drive too often, and to combine errands. I do like the class room atmosphere, though - it's fun!!

I hope this helps you.

Oh Man!! I have a great book on this, packed away somewhere.... Nawma took a class from this lady in Nashville a couple of years ago, but I can't remember her name.... Maybe Nawma will come along and shed some light....

Was it Karen Kay Buckley? OUr guild has her book, and it's great! I need to get some projects done and out of the way, then I'm going to tackle it. Mimi Dietrich is also a good one. Gerda

Kathy Delaney is the lady I took the class from and her book is very good. Can't remember the name of it now but she knows her applique!!

Karen Kay Buckley - She is the one that teaches that Border by Design class we wanted to take in Houston Nawma. She has sold out almost all of her classes. Now, I must find that book! Maybe half price has it....

I think Kathy Delaney has wonderful technique and hints. I would suggest having her book in addition to another beginner book - when I was really new at all of this, I had a hard time following her instructions because it was a bit over my head. Now I love it though!!
