Alex LIVE: Neutral Blooms Lesson 6
Why Does Alex Prefer the Apliquick Method of Appliqué?

It's time to prepare the flowers for Neutral Blooms. This is finished appliqué and Alex likes to use the Apliquick Method. This way she doesn't burn her fingers with the iron or get sticky fingers from glue. Alex used to like the starch method, but has changed over to using the Apliquick tools. Find out why.

Alex is LIVE TODAY Monday, May 9, 2022 @ 10am PST, 1pm EST, and 6pm London time. All classes are recorded so they can be viewed later.

I was lucky enough to meet Olesya at her The Quilt Show taping. She is fun, energetic, and endlessly inventive. She has found new ways to make tiny-tiny piecing possible, and easy. I am so impressed with her thinking out of the box, using pinking shears to manage tiny piecing. Really! And her turning method is equally inventive. Add her pride in her Ukrainian Heritage was palpable, as we all pray, and support Ukraine's struggle to exist. Thank you for your two year effort to get her to the US post Covid. Her demonstration of her special skillset was so interesting. I love this show, experts teach us, those many tricks that make sewing easier and we all have more to learn. I learn something new with each episode, and am introduced to artists I m ay not have know about before.
