    Raw-edge applique

    Can anyone suggest a book about raw-edge applique. I'm really interested in doing this and would like a book that would do a good job at explaining the process. Thanks for any help.

    I am a fan of raw edge appliqué. I just went to Youtube and watched a bunch of videos. They are step by step and I can watch and pause as I am following the directions.

    This is a great book. See if your library can get it on interlibrary loan so you can 'test drive' it before you buy.

    Thanks for all the suggestions. I have never done this technique and don't want to mess it up. Thanks again.
