Beth's hand-appliqué tips help you at every step, from the initial creation and organization of templates to embellishing your quilt motifs with embroidery stitches. Efficiently cut and address the paper templates, glue-baste perfect circles and sharp points in deceptively simple techniques, then machine-stitch your motif to the background for heirloom-quality results.

"Beth is a great teacher. I'm a newbie when it comes to quilting and applique, but am fired up to start, and feel empowered to not only make a cushion cover - as planned - but even a large quilt ! Beth is calm and has a great sense of humor. The lessons are clear and have good camera angles. (...) I've been pleasantly surprised that even complicated applique and large projects are made so straightforward and look so impressive, all with Beth's help."
