Show 2702: Appliqué Masterclass 2

Featuring: Rosa Rojas / Sue Garman / Sue Nickels / Liuxin Newman / Ricky Tims

Posts On: July 12, 2020


In TQS' second Appliqué Masterclass, Rosa Rojas and Sue Garman share tips and tricks on prepping your appliqué, making perfect circles and making stems with bias bars. Sue Nickels teaches her method of designing an appliqué border based on an antique quilt from the 1800s.

Then Liuxin Newman will astound you with her needleturn method of making super tiny dots, micro lines, and her ‘Chinese weaver stitch’ which results in very sharp points.

these shows on applique are so instructive. (I sure wish I'd seen them before I did my applique for the Sequoia Scrap Quilt!) :-) Thanks for sharing.

Well done A&R! Masterclass 2 features a set of show segments that "talked me into" signing up for a TQS membership. In addition to imparting great applique techniques, what I really appreciated about these shows is how they help to highlight the reality that we are a global community of quilters. At the top of my TQS wish list is a deep, deep dive into Rosa's approach to doing Hawaiian quilt as she did in her segment with Alex with the red fabric.
