How to Do Applique Stems and Leaves and How to Make a Border with Jill Finley
(Show 1902) Jill Finley, quilt designer, displays some of her quilting creations, which she deems traditional, but makes with fresh, clear colors, white backgrounds and accents of black. Jill loves to add appliqué vines, and she shows you a clever and easy method. You will learn how to “lick ‘n’ fix” a wrinkle, to appliqué a leaf point using the needle turn technique, and easy methods for making a border with inverted and convex curves. Jill then turns her attention to bias tape, showing how you make it and use it. Appliqué can soften the look and create additional interest in your quilt projects.
