Full materials list included in instructions
Detailed step-by-step instructions illustrated with close-up photographs take you through each stage of making this project from preparing the appliqué shapes, stitching them in place and embellishing them through to quilting and binding
All appliqué shapes are provided full-size, ready to trace
Instructions are for fusible-web appliqué satin-stitched by machine, but they can be readily adapted to suit the appliqué method of your choice
Close-up photographs show you how to create the illusion of depth on your appliqué with fabric-marking pens, paints or coloured pencils
Deborah's clever use of black background fabric means that you can achieve the effect of stained-glass appliqué without the needle for making and appliqueing bias strips
