Description: This beautiful, original appliqued quilt is a series of flowers designed for a block of the month to teach a number skills. In a 3 hour class, we will discuss and try several methods and skills, prior to you starting your blocks. We will start on the simplest of the blocks, and review (or teach) the back basting system of applique. You will also learn about which threads and needles work best, how to make perfect stems – straight and curved, how to stitch smooth rounded edges, how to successfully alter an applique pattern, and other handy tricks to help you in your applique process. Included will be a discussion, and ideas, for setting the blocks.
Hand applique requires scissors, pin, needles and threads. A kit will be provided with enough thread to get started along with two needles. You will also receive the entire packet of block patterns.
