Applique Innovations: Machine Techniques for Beautiful Clothing
"I'm an unabashed Agnes Mercik fan...She is not only an outstanding designer with an exquisite sense of color, but she understands how to use the stitches on the sewing machine....this book contains many delightful innovations, such as overlaying the basic satin stitch with a metallic blanket stitch for extra sparkle...After covering the basics...Agnes designs projects using...corded, cutwork, elastic, non-traditional Mola, wing needle, tone-on-tone, upside-down, and wool. Each project is classic and elegant...You will be able to use these shapes on many items....Highly recommended."--The Creative Machine.
