I want to teach myself how to hand applique. Do you know of a good instructional DVD or book? I found this Piece O'Cake one on Amazon.com and it has good reviews, but I cannot find any information on the actual techniques it teaches other than that it covers both machine and hand applique.
I have a specific project in mind and think the starch method might work. I made a quilt using the starch method a few years ago but the pieces were large and simple; the new project is more complicated. My only other foray into applique was Shasta Daisy, made in 2009, using machine button-hole stitch.
If you have any advice, please do leave a comment!
