Being a perfectionist and frustrated with her own traditional hand appliqué results, Rosa Rojas was determined to find a better, faster and easier method for achieving the beautiful hand appliqué she desired. The result was the Apliquick tools that allow a person to make even the tiniest of perfect circles. This Spanish designer and artist says that it is all about ‘letting the tools’ do the work for you. Addicted to appliqué, Rosa even shows you how easy it is to design and make your own Hawaiian quilt.
Ricky also has a demonstration of a twisted thread chain, by machine, that will add texture and interest to your quilt work. Variations and interest can be enhanced depending on the size and type of silk ribbon or cording used.
