I have a copy of my book 'Autumn Bouquet' in my hands and I can't wait to share what's inside.

Autumn Bouquet Book | Sharon Keightley Quilts

It's here ! It is so great to be able to look through the pages, even tho I have revised it many times. It feels so different to actually have a printed copy to look through and see the final outcome of all my hard work.  Martingale Publishing have done a fabulous job of the book, with stunning photos of my quilts. They have been absolutely fabulous to work with.

The book has instructions and lots of pictures for the two main methods I use for applique in my quilts, I hope you will give them a try. There is detailed instructions for stitching the applique in place invisibly by machine or you may choose to stitch by hand if you prefer.

I am so excited to have been able to write about the applique process, as it is a part of quilt making that I truly love.

Thread choices for invisible machine applique
Thread choices for invisible machine applique

July 12, 2021

Invisible machine applique seems to be mostly associated with either smoke or clear monopoly or nylon threads. When starting my journey with invisible machine applique these are the threads I used too. Now of course there are so many wonderful threads available, many of them suitable. The only thing that may be of concern is that you need a variety of colours, with monopoly smoke and clear threads there are only two colour choices, therefore limiting how many colours you need. Read more about my thread choices.
