Remembrances Hand Applique

You’ve got the basics and conquered your fear of the “A” work, and you’re ready for your next adventure in appliqué! You’ll enjoy this class. Inspired by a poem written by Lucy Larcom in 1855, this original design can be used as a center medallion, incorporated into an album quilt, or stand alone as a wall hanging. With a minimum of prep work and a maximum of fun, you’ll learn how to combine traditional techniques with newer back basting. The basics will be reviewed—points, curves, notches, multiple way to do stems-then we will venture into unit construction, reverse appliqué, and even some ink work! You know you’re ready, so sign up today and join the fun!
