Review

Back-Basting Applique Step by Step By Hand or Machine teaches those with some basic applique skills how to baste shapes in place by working from the wrong side of the fabric to eliminate marks in front. It provides novices and those with experience with new techniques provided in a lesson format with step-by-step photos throughout, and teaches how to work with layered and overlapped appliques, using seven different projects to explore the options. The result is an outstanding needlework book highly recommended for any seeking new techniques and different results from applique work!
--California Bookwatch, August 2013

Learn a new way to baste appliqué working from the wrong side of the fabric - no marking required! This technique is suitable for needle-turn or machine appliqué and is outlined in step-by-step photos. Novice and experienced quilters alike will have plenty to learn from this clever book. Seven unique projects are included. --Quilter's Newsletter Magazine, December/January 2014

This step-by-step guide from That Patchwork Place is a perfect introduction to back-basting appliqué for beginner patchworkers. All the tips and techniques necessary for accurate basting to prepare for neddleturn or machine sewing are here. Starting with the basics, appliqué aficionado Barb Eikmeier clearly describes back-basting methods for a range of appliqué shapes and styles, resulting in flawless designs. The six projects include the contemporary "Korean Roof Tiles Wall Hanging" and a cute and bright hexagonal "Owl Table Topper", both of which utilize and build upon the techniques taught in the first half of the book. Extremely approachable and informative... look for it at your local bookstore or online. --Australian Patchwork & Quilting, Volume 23

I have been waiting a long time for this book to be published and I am not disappointed. In fact, I am LOVING the book! I took a beginning back basting class from the author and have waited patiently to learn more. This book is written in language that is basic and understandable with illustrations that are so clear. Along with lovely quilts, projects for all levels, and the clear directions, a person could easily learn the entire method from this book. From the clear instructions in this book, this method of back basting appliqué could change the way others do appliqué as it has for me.

This is my favorite applique prep technique and apart from a class with Jeana Kimball in 1998 and a few online tutorials there has not been any information on it - especially doing it by machine. Lots of excellent information and step by step photos.

I love applique and use the back-basting method. This book is a valuable one with lots of tips and how-to's. I would recommend it for baginners to back-basting as well as more experienced quilters.

Applique is an art I have tried over the years but was never very satisfied with results. With the clear instructions in this book and the optional stitches, I think I will be pleased. It will go with me to a quilting group.

I love this book! I love to applique but have always wondered how others that applique have such invisible stitches. This book is my answer to perfect applique. I am very happy with my results. The book shows many pictures and great instructions. I was lucky enough to visit our local quilt shop where Barbara was holding a book signing so got an autographed book. I love the instructions and have already used one of the patterns in the book. I would highly recommend this book if you want to applique with ease :)
