Fusible applique is a popular technique that combines the beauty of traditional needle-turn applique with the ease of pressing an adhesive-backed fabric piece onto a quilt background, then sewing over it to hold it down. Yoder, author of the popular quilting blog Little Miss Shabby, demonstrates the versatility of petal-shaped appliques, most commonly seen in the traditional orange-peel quilt block. Many of Yoder's blocks take a traditional block, such as an Ohio star or a snowball, and add fusible applique petals, which gives new dimension to old favorites. Each of the block designs includes a full-sized quilt pattern as well as a pillow pattern, providing quilters who want to experiment with fusible applique a small-scale project to attempt before tackling something larger. VERDICT Though the color schemes are thoroughly modern, the techniques and projects will appeal to quilters of all tastes, and the author's cheery designs and clear, concise directions will give sewists the confidence they need to take on any of the projects in this book.
