Author Penny HarenFrom the Author

For more than 20 years as a quilter and several years as a shop owner, I've been developing and teaching techniques that make it quick, easy and fun for quilters—even beginners—to create intricate miniature blocks. But, don't let the word "miniature" intimidate you. These same techniques can be used for all of your piecing and appliqué projects.

Pieced Appliqué™ eliminates inset points and curves from even the most complicated blocks. Quilts and blocks that you might never have considered are now not only possible but a breeze.

Also, first and foremost, as a proud mother of five, I've always appreciated new tools that help save time while making quilting even easier. So I designed new fussy cutting and squaring up rulers for Creative Grid® that are perfect complements for Pieced Appliqué™.

I used three very different and unique fabric lines in this book to illustrate the dramatic difference fabric can make in a block or quilt. The LaBelle Rose line by Holly Holderman is used in the featured Pieced Appliqué™ blocks and in the technique notebooks. The Full Sun fabric line designed by WillowBerry Lane and the New Nation line by Nancy Gere are used in the color option block examples

Sharla's Comments: Who is Sharla's Hicks? CLICK HERE

What makes this Pieced Applique series an excellent candidates to add to your quilting library. Penny Haren's background as a shop owner and teacher brings a unique perspective on helping the quilter (beginner to advanced) do accurate piecing. She developed the innovative technique pieced appliqué to do just that..

  • Accuracy, simplicity and elegance is built into piecing a block when you work from a block foundation to appliqué overlays which eliminate dreaded point matching, curves, and seam allowance distortion issues.
  • The result is extremely accurate pieced appliqué blocks to create quilts of any size from large to miniature.
  • Another plus using this piecing method is built-in flexibility because this appliqué technique can be done by hand or machine. You can use your sewing machine at home or take it with you for handwork while traveling, all the while working on the same quilt.
