One of my fall projects is to finish something I've been putting off -- building the Quilting site's appliqué how-to resources. I think I have a mental block
of sorts about writing about it, but several appliqué patterns are about ready to go live, including Pitchers for Tildy's Cabin
, a small quilt that combines paper piecing with appliqué (later today is the goal for that quilt). So I need to get as many techniques covered as possible.
There are lots of variations for hand and machine appliqué, and right now the plan is to start with hand sewing methods. If you're just starting out with appliqué, the question that's part of the poll below suits just fine. Anyone who's experienced should change the question to What's your favorite appliqué technique? -- responses from quilters in both groups will help me decide how to work through the articles.
