Hi! Sorry about not posting during the past few days. Life has been getting in the way! I’m moving through it though.
This class sounds so interesting! Machine hand applique? This is how teacher Beth Ferrier explains the class: “Applique is all about the prep work, and I’ll show you how to make the best templates in the least amount of time. My ‘addressing system’ will keep all of our tiny bits of applique organized, which is especially helpful when making large quilts with many design repeats.
Next, I’ll help you choose fabric that makes your heart happy with fabulous tips for understanding the value – of value! We’ll trim the pieces using a helpful trick for achieving clean, scant quarter inch seams, and learn the secret to making tiny bias stems.
With a humble glue stick, you’ll baste beautifully turned edges, while learning the strategies of ‘overs and unders’. Then, we’ll be ‘docking’ – bringing all of our lovely little applique parts together to create marvelous motifs. We’ll also go over the process of machine stitching the motifs in a way that makes our applique appear truly hand sewn.”
You’ll receive Beth Ferrier’s e-book “More! Hand Applique by Machine” for free when you sign up. Right now the class is $19.99. It’s regularly $39.99.
