Scrappy Bits applique by Shannon Brinkley of Bottle Tree Quilts brings a sense of fun and freedom to applique. The projects in this book are just like the crispiest potato chips…Can’t choose just one project to like, so let’s just do them all!
Shannon covers all the important stuff from color and technique to tools and fabrics simply and clearly. And she offers the most important thing ever: plenty of options within the techniques to make these fusible quilts your own, both in the planning and in the execution of each one of the patterns. Stinkin’ cool!
But yeah, okay, we’ll pick our fave: Around the World is either a great geography lesson for kids in school or the perfect map for authors and teachers to put pins showing all the cool places they’ve taught and visited.
Can we have a second fave, though? This friendly Tamed Fox gets everyone singing.
