    "Applique, The basics and Beyond", is a great reference book with lots of pictures.

    Here is a link to it at amazon. I ordered it from my local quilt store. But, the price here is much better.

    Of the 5 books I hace, "The New Applique Sampler" -- Learn to applique the Piece O' Cake Way by Becky Goldsmith & Linda Jenkins is my favorite. Illustrations on almost every page (for righ & left-handed individuals). Good luck.

    I've seen that book that RedGarnet is recommending. Looks like a great resource book to own.

    For machine applique, I don't think you can beat Harriet Hargrave's book:

    This applique class is being offered online for free right now.

    http://www.thequiltshow.com/os/lesso...r/alexanderson

    You just have to subscribe to the site also free. They don't offer many free online classes and Alex is one of the best. Check it out.

    I love Pat Andreata's books and patterns but not sure if they are still in print. She made me fall in love with applique. OH- I'm talking about hand-applique. For machine I would vote Harriet Hargrave, hands down!
