“The dynamic duo behind the Piece O’ Cake brand have experimented with a style of applique that is new to them in this collection of 10 projects . . . they decided to have a go working with large, bold stitches in colors that often contrast with the fabric. The projects they’ve included are all small—cushions, tea towels, wallhangings—so there’s ample opportunity to choose one and give this method a whirl.” —Australian Homespun Magazine
