Raw-edge Appliqué: 14 Fast and Fun Frayed Quilt Projects
Quilters could only have dreamed of making a Dresden Plate minus fussy needle-turn applique, stitching a Lone Star free from fretting over perfect points on countless diamonds, or creating an Orange Peel without matching a curve. This dream is a reality with Jodie Davis' new book, presenting the raw edge technique she debuted a decade ago. Readers will be able to eliminate hours of pinning and matching with this fun, fast technique using a straight machine stitch. The raw edges are left exposed to become slightly frayed as the quilt is loved, washed and, dried - and then loved some more. Simple enough for a beginner, yet exciting for a long-time quilter, this book makes both traditionally pieced and appliqued quilts a breeze.
