What does the terms "sewing appliques" mean to you? Do you think of hand applique? Machine applique? The applique stitch?
Do you know how to appliqué? Many people are only familiar with hand appliqué, but there are many methods, from raw-edge appliqué to machine appliqué using a satin stitch

I enjoy raw-edge appliqué for many reasons. It's certainly a faster way of appliqué quilting than than hand appliqué and I like the extra texture it brings to my fiber art.
When I first laid eyes on Dijanne Cevaal's "Blue Travelers' Blanket," a rich example of appliqué quilting, I fell in love with it.
