(or what I have so far!)
|This appliqué series will be divided into categories
as the pages expand. I would love to have a complete web site on
appliqué, and as time allows, I will continue to add to these pages.
Right now I have an online class
|So, take a look at this lesson and see if it is something that will
interest you. Appliqué is very easy once you try it and the
"scare tactics" put upon the "A" word are not justified... trust
Lesson Blocks for this quilt:
Pumpkin Appliqué center block with a general hand appliqué lesson for making the shapes of the pumpkin and very easy graceful bias vines.
Practice appliqué hearts
for a quick lesson and test run to learn to do freezer paper "on the
bottom" appliqué .
In the future as time allows, I will expand to other techniques of appliqué using freezer paper on the top and freezer paper appliqué borders.
I will also get into "needle turn appliqué". This is great for sewing down elements cut from fabric to apply to other fabric. For example, I once cut a yellow submarine from a fun fabric and appliquéd it to an under the sea round robin piece. I added a lovely submarine without a lot of the piecing work of making the submarine.
You can do appliqué by the cut and needle turn method. A lot of the Hawaiian quilts are made this way.
