Have you ever wanted to preserve a child’s illustration? Alex shows how to take a drawing, transfer it to fabric, and create an embroidered memento. Guest Designer Jill Finley then 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.
Alex creates a family treasure when she uses her granddaughter's drawing to create a tooth fairy pillow to treasure.
Jill talks to Alex and Ricky about her creative process. She discusses everything including her fabric choices and notions.
Join in with Jill as she demonsrates how she creates her applique pieces using several sheets of freezer paper, Appli-Glue, and a steady hand.
