Bended Bias Applique Reviews
Bended Bias Appliqué by Linda M. Poole is a must have for every quilters' library. Linda walks you through every step of the bias process. Bias appliqué adds a real punch to any quilt and Linda makes it easy to do. The pictures are clear and the instructions are easy to understand.
Patterns are all pretty much the same. However, the book did adequatly explain how to use the process.
"Bended Bias Applique" takes bias tape one step further than what is usually seen. It begins with several methods of making and applying your own bias tape. Color and design possibilites really expand when you are able to use whatever material fires your imagination. Next are tips for setting up your applique design and also quilting ideas. The big attraction of this book for me, however, is the wonderful assortment of flower patterns. There is a nod to Celtic-style designs and others, but there are over 20 flower designs, in addition to some butterfiles and hummingbirds. All are gorgeous and can be used with the bias technique, or as regular applique, whatever your preferred technique. This is a colorful book, sure to spark your imagination!
Linda Poole's latest book about using bias binding is just incredible. Her techniques make it so easy to create beauty! I especially like the simplicity of making complicated looking Celtic designs. Her instructions on making your own bias are super and really save a lot of money. Plus....you can exactly match or contrast your project with the exact bias you want. A really must have book for the appliquer, or person wanting to learn applique. Her patterns are great, or you can use her techniques with your own designs.
When I first heard about this book, I believed it to be a beginner's tome...however, upon reading it, the excitement built until I began using many of the techniques outlined by Linda Poole. I have been doing applique for over 40 years and it has once again become exciting to envision a new project with the addition of bias to enhance each design element. A well done book, with something for everyone who likes to do hand work, or who yearns to learn, or to perfect their hand work. Thank you Linda!
I love flowers. This book offers a wonderful variety of them. The method, as Linda lays it out, is simple and straight forward. It seemed that she took me by the hand and led me step by step through the process. What fun! There are 15 different flowers to pick from, along with several butterflies and even a humming bird. Who could ask for more?
I have enjoyed Linda's book immensely. I found it to be very informative and the instructions were especially easy to follow, step by step. The photographs were very helpful, clear and colorful. This technique is easy, fun and adds life and depth to your quilt. I would highly recommend it to anyone that wants to try something new and exciting.
Thanks to Linda Poole, I have used this easy technique to finish a stained glass memorial quilt for my father. The duck pond comes to life with the addition of thin bias outlines. My quilt took second place at the fair. Thanks again Linda for GREAT INSPIRATION and USEFUL text. Next I'm planning an Irish Celtic Quilt for a special ladyfriend.
