I have to give a shout out to my buddy Annie Smith (Quilting Stash podcaster) for her book, the Ultimate Applique Guidebook. This book is sensational! Everything you need to succeed with applique is within its pages. There are over 150 applique design elements-flowers, leaves, stems, vases, birds etc-and you can mix and match all of the elements to design your own applique treasures! There are reviews for both hand and machine techniques for applique, as well as step-by-step instructions with very detailed pictures to help you through the applique process. Every tool you need is reviewed, and full-size patterns and beautiful examples of applique quilts are also included. Annie really did a bang-up job with this book and I couldn't be more pleased for her, as there is hardly a more generous and humble person in the industry.

I found this one to be inspiring and easy to follow with encouragement to use either hand or machine stitching and reasons for using one or the other.
Includes instructions for layering and suggestions for choosing the right colours on your background to make your applique designs really stand out.
This will become part of my reference library.
I am not a newby or an old hand at applique so this suited me perfectly.
There is tons of patterns/design elements included and ready to use as is or create your own designs with. Worth the price, especially on sale!

The book contains 150 designs- lots of flowers, stems and vases. It also has patterns for cute dog and cat patterns and patterns for bugs- lady bugs and bees are some.
I like this book because it contains a lot of useable patterns that you could mix and match, and that you could adapt to make your own designs and blocks. It is also a great reference book and a book that will give you new ideas for your quilts.
