Applique, anyone?

by Becky
Let's have an appliqué class and I'll show you a technique I learned from Annie, who lives on an island in Puget Sound and has supported our veterans project by sending quilts the past two years. Annie inspired me and introduced me to Kerry's blog: and that is when I started my Civil War Bride quilt using the freezer paper/starch method. I've used many methods for applique over the years, but this one is definitely my favorite and I want to share it with you.

Block 2 of my Civil War Bride quilt - Pattern by Corliss Searcey.

WHEN: November 8 & 9 at our regular meeting place

TIME: 10 a.m.

CLASS DESCRIPTION: I'll give a demonstration of the technique and provide a fabric kit and help each of you make and appliqué a stem, leaf and circle, which are some of the basic shapes used in appliqué. Class is for all levels, no fee.

BRING: your regular sewing kit and lunch

Supplies - I'll share with you:

Freezer Paper sheets by C. Jenkins
Small water color paint brush
Roxanne Glue-Baste-It
Silk Thread
Appliqué needles

Please leave a comment or send me an email to sign up so I will know how many kits to make and let me know which day you prefer.
