"I've been fascinated with curves and circles in quilts since I began quilting more than 25 years ago," notes Nancy Mahoney. "The downside for most quilters, including myself, is piecing those curves.... Then one day I realized ... I could appliqué them!" Here Mahoney offers eight scrappy quilt patterns in traditional and contemporary styles that employ her easy machine appliqué techniques to add curves, including fusible appliqué and starch appliqué. They're ideal both for precut pieces—fat quarters, fat eighths, and strips—and scraps from your stash.
"A fine collection of curved-appliqué designs ... packed with tips and techniques."—Midwest Book Review
