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.
From Chapter One:
Becky Goldsmith shows Ricky how she uses templates and needle turn appliqué to create a leaf.
Karen Kay Buckley demonstrates for Ricky how to make perfect circles every time. Then Karen shares tips with Alex for making perfect appliqué stems, including an ironing trick to keep the stem laying flat.
Pat Holly shows Ricky how to do stitched backgrounds, machine stitch tiny circles, assemble units with tweezers and how to make fusible frames.
Alex explains to Ricky how she prepares finished machine appliqué. We end the show with Suzanne Marshall, Ricky's quilting mentor, showing him how she creates bias using lined notebook paper.
