Quilter Tonye Belinda Phillips' passion for folk art inspired her to develop a simple method for making stunning hand-appliquéd quilts. In this beautiful volume, Tonye reveals the techniques she's discovered on her quilting journey: ideas for choosing fabrics, working with color, and creating the appliqué shapes, as well as placing, basting, and stitching them up. The 20 bright and cheerful projects include a basic basket-shaped pattern, an updated floral motif with playful spirals, and a garden-themed design with watering cans.

What Others Are Saying
“Tonye manages to break the art of appliqué down, demystifying it as a foreign technique to one that is truly accessible to anyone with simple sewing skills… A beautiful book, with plenty of guidance for beginners and more-advanced quilters alike, and plenty of color and design inspiration for starting your own hand-appliqued quilt.” —
