You asked for it - free-motion quilting and applique resources!

You asked and we delivered!  An overwhelming majority of the answers to our June Giveaway Question pertained to free-motion machine quilting and applique techniques.  I have searched high and low for some great resources, and am happy to share these with you today!

This book is an excellent resource!  Containing methods and techniques, a troubleshooting guide, and over fifty designs, this is a great book to keep on hand.

For a bit more assistance, watch this instructional DVD!

Our very own step-by-step photo guide to spray-starch applique!  At just $3, you can buy one for all of your friends!

Follow along with Pearl as she shows her own technique. 

This book is the equivalent to a multi-day workshop!  Contains ten applique techniques and projects for learning each.

I hope these books and DVDs are helpful for you.  For even more reference material, check out our newest Patterns & Books category: Reference & How-To.

Thank you to everyone who responded.  It is great to know what you want to learn!  Our three randomly selected winners are:

Patty D.
Diane H.

Congratulations, ladies, you have each won a $25 gift certificate.  Check your inbox for details!
