If you have ever been into our shop than you know how much we love Applique. Although some people shy away from this art, we are into it up to our elbows. It does take more time than basic piecing, but the results are so beautiful. Our Anxiety Free Applique’ class is always the most popular and always full. Jeanette teaches tricks to make this process successful for beginners. If Applique’ scares you, take a class! If you do not live here, find someone who teaches in your area. Many people who start out trying to do straight needleturn become frustrated with the result. It takes practice, and there are many great training-wheel methods to use until you move into a more advanced level. By learning to Applique’ you will open up a whole new world of wonderful quilts that you can make. So even if it makes you a little nervous, you should give Applique’ a try, it is well worth the effort.
The above quilt is a Robyn Pandolph Block of the Month called Willing Hands “Botanika”.
