Once you know the secrets, it's easier than you'd ever believe to create the look of heirloom-quality hand appliqué with finished edges – all with your sewing machine!

And when it comes to style and versatility, the sky is the limit.

I use these techniques in many ways:

  • traditional appliqué designs
  • modern appliqué designs
  • faux "piecing" and curved designs
  • landscapes and pictorial quilts
  • stained glass and Celtic designs

and more!

We'll start with an overview of my favorite methods for preparing finished edges, including:

  • Folding and pressing the seam allowance under with a hot iron
  • Freezer-paper on top of the fabric
  • Freezer-paper underneath the fabric
  • Faux "Piecing"
  • Lightweight interfacing
  • Quick-Bias
  • Celtic press bars/bias pressing bars

A mini-trunk show of finished quilts will be included.

We'll also discuss how to set yourself up for success, including:

  • Marking tools
  • Fabric selection
  • Pros and cons of different types and weights of threads
  • Needle choices
  • Stitch settings
  • Stitching order
  • Layered appliqué
