Welcome to the Nancy Zieman blog stop along Pat Sloan’s Mega FUN Book Tour. Pat is kicking off the release of her new book, Teach Me to Machine Quilt. She takes a step-by-step beginner approach to machine quilting.

The book is full of great approaches to any machine quilting situation. One of Pat’s techniques that I found particularly innovative was her approach to machine quilting around appliqué shapes. In the pages of Teach Me to Machine Quilt, find the detailed instructions to design and fuse appliqué shapes.

Set up a straight guideline. Pat recommends painter’s tape. What a wonderful and simple solution!






Using the tape as a guide, Pat then illustrates how to stitch in straight lines; jumping over the appliqué shape.






Thanks so much, Pat, for sharing this great tip, and so many more!

On this Mega FUN Book Tour you have an opportunity to win one of five e-books from Pat Sloan and Martingale Press/That Patchwork Place. Hop over to the book tour hub for details.
