Invisible Zig-Zag Applique
This workshop is for those who are scared of the “A” word or who think they’ll never be able to appliqué beautiful quilts! (Or those who want to learn a new technique to add to their repertoire.)
By using this freezer paper method to prepare the shapes and stitching them to your block by machine, you’ll learn how to appliqué in a fraction of the time it takes to hand appliqué, with stunning results.
Using 3 different stitches you will learn mock hand applique with invisible thread, contemporary applique with a straight stitch, and traditional applique with the blanket stitch.
At the workshop, you’ll learn how to set up your machine with invisible and regular thread, how to prepare the appliqué shapes with freezer paper and how to remove the freezer paper after sewing the shapes down. We will work on an easy bird wall hanging, but will discuss how to use this method for any of your appliqué projects.
All students finish the quilt top in class and receive complete instructions for finishing the quilt at home.
Purchase of pattern required (available at the workshop for $10.00).
