Take your applique to a new level of ease. International prize-winning quiltmakers Sue Nickels and Pat Holly show just how easy it is to create beautiful finished quilt projects with their new fusing methods. Even fussy pieces have sharp points, neat edges, and no seam allowances to turn under. And best yet, the resulting quilts are soft and flexible - unlike many quilts made with traditional fusing methods. These two masters of machine quiltmaking show you tricks of the trade to make your own masterpiece. Even beginning appliquers will find this method accessible and easy to learn. The book is liberally laced with illustrations. Pat's Pointers and Sue's Solutions provide handy hints to make the fusible applique even easier and more fun. A number of other techniques are served up to entice the quilter to enrich her quilts with simple embellishments, such as very narrow bias stems, couched thread details, and really tiny circles. Quilters learn to create their own embroidered background fabrics, embellished bindings, and looped edges, through five charming, fusible applique projects in the book.

Pat has been sewing almost her whole life, beginning with sewing clothes as a young girl. She is a graphic artist and attended the University of Michigan School of Art & Design. She also spends time volunteering for her daughter's theater endeavors, including costume work for local productions. Pat and her sister, Sue Nickels, enjoy working together on quilts as well as patterns and books. They live about a three-hour drive from each other and find creative ways to manage working together on projects. Sue travels extensively, teaching machine techniques, and Pat will join Sue occasionally, especially for international trips. This has been a wonderful working relationship. Pat and Sue work so well together because they both love the connection with quilters of the past and enjoy the technology of today.
