Wow, what a treasure! Over on the Martingale blog Stitch This! there’s a hand appliqué tutorial from appliqué icon Mimi Dietrich.

Mimi is the author of many wonderful appliqué titles. In this illustrated tutorial she gives the “freezer paper on the back” method, complete with stitching tips. Thanks Mimi!

Not only that, Martingale has put her book Mimi Dietrich’s Favorite Appliqué Quilts on sale at 40% off this week. And I was very tickled to see that this sale also includes my book Inspired by Tradition. Now that’s good company!

    I need to pay attention to the way I do my appliqués, lol.
    I am fine with prim style, but I need to take the time to do nice ones for my regular quilts. I do have your book and plan on making some things from it, I really like the set of 3 blocks, hanging on a string.
