Step-by-Step Videos

Scrappy Applique E-Workbook

The E-Workbook will guide you through the process and includes my additional Common Problems Trouble Shooting Guide, so you can easily find a solution to problems you come across. 

Scrappy Applique Pattern Library

Bonus Classes

If you grab the course now, you'll also get 2 fabulous bonus classes! These bonuses are only available for a limited time.

Bonus: Applique Couching

Learn how to finish the edges of your applique piece by couching yarn! I have 2 ways to do this that are way simpler to do than they look (both done using your machine) and adds such lovely texture and interest to your quilt. This is such a fun technique!

Bonus: Faux Needle-Turn Applique

Learn how to get the same sweet and classic look of needle-turn applique, with all of your edges turned under, but done lightning fast and all on your machine! It’s a simple and fun technique that gives a really pretty effect.

About Shannon Brinkley

Shannon Brinkley is a quilt & fabric designer, international teacher & speaker, and the author of the book Scrappy Bits Applique. A former elementary teacher, Shannon is able to break down the process so it is super simple to digest and quick to implement! She developed and perfected Scrappy Applique over the course of a decade, and has taught it hundreds of times, so it is now streamlined, simple, and fool-proof!

"The class was wonderful, and I enjoyed her teaching style. She was very clear, gave us lots of options and support. Her scrappy applique technique was a lot of fun, and different in a good way!"


"Had a great time making this. Since this was my first Scrappy Applique, watching the video lesson was worth it!"


"I took Shannon's Scrappy Applique class last week. Loved her class and my final product! A great technique that I will use again and again I'm sure. Thanks Shannon!!"

Karen C

"Fantastic Workshop taught by Shannon. I’m a beginner quilter but was able to finish the piecing and top stitching in one day. Shannon’s instructions are clear and her class is fun!"

Mary C

"Shannon’s class has inspired and peeked my interest in ways I cant yet express but will soon be able to show my quilts and wall hangings and works of art that Shannon’s class has inspired me to create!!!"

Nicole L

"I loved doing this pattern from picking out the colors to the collaging to the quilting. It is so impactful to look at. I amazed myself! I want to make more of Shannon's patterns. I am entering this quilt in our local summer arts festival."

They are machine washable! I've made many Scrappy Applique baby quilts that have been washed dozens of times, and they hold up great! Whether or not you have fraying will depend on which finishing option you choose, and I let you know which ones will have zero or minimal fraying.
