Show 1912 - Hand Appliqué Revolution: From Frustration to Perfection

Featuring: Rosa Rojas

Trailer


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.

That was so helpful. I've always had difficulty with needle turn appliqué. Can't wait to try it with appliquick! Thanks.

Can someone who understood what she said about the difference between the two pencils tell me - I did get the first was graphite but did not understand what she was saying the second one was. Thank you.

I used the Apliquilt tools for the first time before this show aired. I only had a few demonstrations to watch as I did circles all over a quilt that I was making. They turned out okay BUT seeing how it should be done by the creator of the tools has been a blessing. Now I know how to smooth out those little pleats that form at first. I absolutely love that I can now do applique with more confidence!

Loved this show and learned lots. Mostly, I would love to try to make the Hawaiian quilt they displayed on the show. Does anyone know what the pattern is and where it can be purchased? Thanks for you help!

I saw this tool in Grand Rapids a year ago, but could not get to see the demo because there were so many people crowding the booth...I just loved this show..she made hand appliqué look easy.

I enjoyed this show . I love to do turned appliqué. I really like the apliquick stabilizer but since I learned to do this method from a lady named Judy Neimeyer at a
quiltworx.com using the purple thang, I will continue to use that. Smg

I really enjoyed this show! I think I need some new tools...I have always loved the look of turned applique but when I tried it I felt it was so difficult. I might just need to retry it soon.
