Are you familiar with Scraplique? As a lover of applique and scraps, I just love this term that Jane Townswick has created. Jane is an accomplished author, editor, teacher, and former quilt-shop owner. She has also been an instructor at the esteemed Elly Sienkiewicz Applique’ Academy since 2000. In her book “Artful Applique II”, Jane introduces Scraplique’, a free-form technique for applique that creates very spectacular and unique designs that a mosaic like fabric compositions.
“Artful Applique II”, published by Martingale & Company, home of That Patchwork Place, is an amazing book that introduces 12 new floral designs. This book has excellent instructions and visuals for applique techniques, color blending, free-form stems and branches, as well as the mosaic-like scraplique technique that Jane has beautifully created.
There is also a wonderful Gallery of inspirational quilts and wallhangings.
And, of course, all of the 12 floral blocks are absolutely beautiful.
