Crafted Applique Blog Hop

Have you heard about Lara Buccella's new book? She developed a new method for applique that is raw edged but never frays. Best of all {for me} it's machine stitched! Since I still have to limit hand work and have several projects that need applique, this technique intrigued me.

Crafted Applique: New Possibilities is a delightful read. Lara's artwork is charming; the ones inside the book are a delightful as the cover.

I'm planning a couple of projects to test my ability that I hope to share soon. In the meanwhile, here's a calendar of her blog hop. Take a look at the many different ways Lara's technique can be used to create amazing art. As a bonus, each hopper is giving away one book.

    1. Lara, your book has been a blessing. It's working out so well I'm sure I can applique in this manner going forward. And it looks better than the work I've been doing by hand.
