Join Megan in this applique technique class to learn different ways to achieve effective hand applique results focusing on both technique and design. Topics covered include template preparation, fabric choice, fussy cutting, needle turn applique, turned edge applique, finishing options, including hand quilting.
Choose an applique pattern you’ve been waiting to start or work from one of Megan’s patterns. At each class, Megan will demonstrate a technique using her Applique Sampler with a Twist quilt as course material and will guide participants on effective colour and fabric selection working from the participant’s stash and suggesting additions to it as needed. Applique Sampler with a Twist, was awarded Best Contemporary Quilt (Professional) and 3rd place Combined Pieced and Applique Quilt (Professional) at the QuiltNSW Sydney Quilt Show 2017.
