Create challenging pieced patterns with the ease of machine appliqué! No more set-in seams! No more curved piecing! No more losing tiny triangle points in seam allowances! Ann and Joyce share their love of traditional blocks and quilts and simple straight piecing. Their easy-to-do satin-stitch machine appliqué mimics intricate piecing without the cutting and sewing through clever placement of basic shapes such as squares and triangles. In addition to explaining this oh-so-simple method perfect for beginners, these sisters show an alternate size and colorway for each of the 11 projects and a gallery of seven more quilts to stimulate your own adaptations of their technique. Patterns and templates make recreating their quilts a snap and designing your own projects super simple. Forget bulky seams, bulging curves, and lopped-off points. You can have precision in your most sophisticated pieced tops, create complex-looking blocks in a snap, and your friends will all say, 'I can't believe it's not piecing!'
