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.
