Jeanne Sullivan's applique method is wonderful. Her attention to detail helps you refine your applique and embroidery skills. Not only was I able to incorporate her methods into the methods which I already use but she taught me a wonderful way to fussy cut fabrics to make my blocks look more realistic. I also like this method because it cuts down on prep time so we can get to our favorite part. The stitching!

After many years of pursuing my passion for appliqué, and completing My Baltimore Album quilt in 1991, I decided in 2010, to updated my Appliqué skill set. Without further ado, I registered for an appliqué class with Jeanne Sullivan. Jeanne's presentation and hands-on demonstration gave me a tremendous amount of pleasure and instant drive to pursue my next appliqué project. There was so much to learn and each challenge was a step towards improving my own appliqué stitch. Needless to say, with an open mind, I learned so much from Jeanne in her one-day class. Her techniques are easily adaptable and instantly rewarding!...I can guarantee, you will never see another one of my stitches where they should not be! A great day is taking a Jeanne Sullivan Appliqué Class that develops positive results!

Although I've been piecing quilts for years, I was intimidated by applique. I tried several techniques but gave up because I was disappointed with the results. Then I tried Jeanne's easy-to-learn method and was making beautiful appliques in fifteen minutes. I am amazed!

Review Fabrications Quilting For You Magazine - March 6, 2013
This book declares that it is 'just 15 minutes to perfection' and being somewhat skeptical of that statement, I found myself reading the book cover-to-cover and being inspired to put the statement to the test. It really doesn't take long at all to learn Jeanne's method, either by hand or machine. What you see is what you get and by working with all your fabrics and templates right side uppermost makes fabric choices so much easier. There are clear instructions for easier and faster techniques for ruching, circles, narrow lines, lettering, Broderie Perse, reverse applique and many others. This book is well worth a look and is most certainly informative.
