Faux Applique by Helen Stubbings

Published 2008

These elegant, traditionally styled designs will enchant and entice you to try the 'colorqué' technique. What is it? Simply the use of colored pencils to re-create the look of intricate appliqué. All the easily assembled tools and needed materials are described in detail. Use the designs singly on small projects or combined for larger and full-sized quilts. Delightfully elegant designs in the tradition of Baltimore album quilts can be easily executed. Helen Stubbings is a lifelong resident of Australia who has traveled the world over. A quilter since working on her certificate in needlecraft in 1995, she has been developing, testing, teaching, and selling pattern instructions and workshop kits featuring her colorqué technique since early 2000.
