Quilter and teacher Tonye Belinda-Phillips has a passion for folk art appliqu —and it inspired her to develop a simple, no-fuss method for making stunning hand-appliqu d quilts. In this beautiful volume, Tonye lays out her fresh, easy approach, revealing all the special techniques she’s discovered on her quilting journey: ideas for choosing fabrics, working with color, and creating the appliqu shapes, as well as placing, basting, and stitching it up. Twenty bright and cheerful projects include a basic basket-shaped pattern that’s great for beginners; an updated floral pattern with playful spirals; and a garden-themed design with watering cans. They’re all photographed using natural light in scenic rustic settings—making this book an object of art in its own right.
