The Applique Book by Casey York

Welcome to Day 2 of the blog hop for The Appliqué Book: Traditional Techniques, Modern Style by Casey York!

Casey York has followed up her first book, Modern Appliqué Illusions, with a comprehensive guide for applique technique called, The Appliqué Book. In her new book, Casey covers seven different appliqué methods including: needle turn, raw edge, reverse appliqué, Broderie Perse, and even improv appliqué! That’s right, improv appliqué.

“Improvisational piecing is so prevalent in modern quilting … and appliqué always has an element of that to it and lends itself to improvisation even more than piecing does.” -Kevin Kosab

The book contains 16 patterns for quilts, a bed runner, a pillow cover and a set of coasters. It is divided up into sections and each one concentrates on a style of appliqué. As you read each section, you are immersed in the technique. There are instructions on the different types of appliqué, patterns, tips, tool recommendations and inspiration.

There are several different aesthetics represented among the twelve quilters who contributed their patterns. They each share their knowledge, inspiration, and tool recommendations.

In addition to the patterns, Casey showcases the work of several well known quilters such as, Melissa Averinos, Sarah Fielke and Denyse Schmidt. Their work shows the possibilities of what appliqué quilts could be.

“…once you identify the technique that suits your style, or if you know about different techniques and find out that it’s not as hard as you think, that is totally freeing.” -Denyse Schmidt
