First up is something you have already seen this week in my new Blog Header:
Due to popular demand, I will be running an Applique skills class, where we will be learning 4 main types of applique.
1. Satin Stitch (machine applique - as shown in the Love cushion above)
2. Free Motion Sketching (machine applique - see below)
3. Needleturn (hand applique):

4. Reverse Needleturn (hand applique)
The class will be mainly techniques based with the option of making 1 cushion.
The cushion borders have been mitred at the corners, which is another technique I've been waiting to teach. I used recycled denim for my borders, and I think the mitred corners help to frame the applique pictures.
Applique is a lot of fun when you find a technique and style that works for you. The creative possibilities are endless!
