Show 2701: Appliqué Masterclass 1

Featuring: Becky Goldsmith / Karen Kay Buckley / Pat Holly / Alex Anderson / Suzanne Marshall

Posts On: June 28, 2020


Machine and hand appliqué can be tricky, especially when it comes to perfect circles, sharp points, bias stems, and prepping individual motifs. In TQS' first Appliqué Masterclass, Becky Goldsmith, Karen Kay Buckley, Pat Holly, Alex Anderson and Suzanne Marshall take the ‘scary’ out of preparing and executing beautiful appliqué pieces with easy to follow tips.

Take your appliqué to a new level with Pat Holly tips for creating your own machine stitched background fabric and fused borders.

I have watched this show twice now and I am beginning to believe I could improve my applique skill set with all these great ideas, examples, & instructions. Thanks to all participants.

Loved this. I have some of Karen's Bigger Perfect Circles, but they didn't have holes for easy storage. So I used my 3 hole punch (easier than using the hand held hold punch) and added holes so I could put them on a ring. Thank you!

I was fortunate to take an applique workshop from Suzanne Marshall YEARS ago in STL. I've used her technique ever since and love her method. Thanks for sharing this master class.

I've been appliqueing for years. The bit with Suzanne was an eye-opener for me. I am just starting a project by Jen Kingwell and now plan to use her method and see if it works for me as well as it does for Suzanne. I can see why she is your mentor, Ricky. Well done!
