Picture Piecing Traditional Quilts
Have you ever wanted the look of applique without the handwork? Author and artist Cynthia England has found it with her innovative Picture Piecing method. This is not a foundation or paper piecing method.
Picture Piecing Traditional Quilts is an 8-1/2in x 11in book with 154 pages in a special lay-flat binding and full color throughout. The quilts in the book are entirely machine pieced with all straight-line piecing, even the details that look like applique from a distance. Unlike foundation and paper-piecing, with Cynthia’s Picture Piecing technique you work from the right side of the fabric and there is no paper to pick out at the end. Best of all, cheating is encouraged to get your blocks perfect!
