Was wondering if they are needle turn applique or fused and machine appliqued?  Thinking I may ask for one of her sets for my anniversary present . ..   :-)  

Thanks!

Dawn. I have a couple of her patterns and both are using fusible web. But I think iit may depend as she says on the instructions "This project has applique pieces that have tight corners and curves, therefore the Fusible Web Applique method is recommended".

Kind of sounds to me like it may vary from pattern to pattern.

Dawn, P.S. The patterns I have are Which Came First and Back on the Farm. Both fusible web. I've made Back on the Farm and will be starting Which Came First this summer or perhaps even at the Oregon Retreat.

I prefer fusible web, so you don't know till you get the pattern?  Wonder if I could contact them and ask . ..  

Thanks Judy!

Dawn, even if the pattern is for needle turn applique you can still use fusible web. You'd just have to reverse the pattern. I really think most, if not all of her patterns are fusible as the ones I've seen are all little pieces with tight corners and sharp edges.

I love her patterns. Maybe I'll scoot on over to her website and browse through them again.

Dawn, I just saw a blurb that says "McKenna Ryan, wonderful fusible patterns". So maybe all of them are fusible.

I've seen lots of completed McKenna Ryan quilts through the local guild, and they are all fusible.
