APPLIQUÉ POTLUCK: Needle-turn Appliqué
Have a great time recreating one of Tonye’s potted plants, baskets or window boxes. Using simple shapes and your favorite fabrics she will share with you the fun and creative energy you are sure to find when playing with hand appliqué. Whether a “newbie” or experienced, hand appliqué can be extremely relaxing and rewarding.
The focus of this class will be utilizing the needle-turn appliqué technique Tonye will share to create your own block using her patterns as inspiration, or mixing up some of the patterns in her book, Hand Appliquéd Quilts/Whimsical Designs and Simple Techniques, to create your very own design. Try sketching out some of your ideas before class for added inspiration. And bring along any other items which might spark your imagination. Remember, this is light hearted, whimsical, folk art!!!
