A couple months ago, I floated the idea of creating a hand-out to give to visitors in my booth who expressed appliqué fear or hesitation. I so appreciated all of your responses and support! I’ve been working on it ever since.

To those who said they liked the graphic, thank you so much! It’s the same as the header for the blog. They are three of the designs from Easy Appliqué Blocks, my first book with Martingale.

It’s also on my business card.

I now have the brochure printed, packed, and ready to debut at the first show of the year, Road to California later this month. We’ll see how they go over. :)

Someone asked if they could purchase one… heavens no! I’ve modified the format so that it’s all one page, nicknamed the Appliqué Self-Help Flier, and I’m posting a pdf of it here for anyone to print. The information is all the same, just rearranged to go on one page instead of a two-sided half-sheet.

Just click on the image below, and the pdf version should pop up for you.

You’ll note that the copyright statement includes permission to distribute the flier at will, provided that it’s not modified and remains in its original form.

Up with appliqué!

    Kay, this is a wonderful idea and hopefully just the encouragment some quilters need to add applique to their repertoire :)

    Thank you for this handy one page flyer. I love the friendly language style. I design mini quilt patterns for mug rugs using quick-fuse applique. Many people who have not tried this method before, do so by making a mini quilt or mug rug. They find it is simple, quick and so much fun. I know they will find this leaflet handy.

    p.s. I too like your header design – very nice.

    […] I pulled up the “Look Inside” on Amazon, started reading the section on “Give Appliqué a Chance,”, and honestly, I got chills. Kevin and I could have one brain on the subject of appliqué hesitation. As you know I had just been working on The Appliqué Self-Help Brochure! […]
