Excited to be teaching an Applique Class

Well, I have to say that I am thrilled to be teaching an applique block of the month class at a relatively new quilt shop here in town, Regal Fabrics & Gifts,, on April 18th from 1:00 - 5:00.  Here is a picture of the class sample for the first month.

We will be covering a new technique of applique each month using patterns by Erin Russek from One Piece at a Time, reprinted with her permission.  

This pattern was a block of the month that she did several years ago and I just love her work.  Please check out her blog and look over her work, total inspiration.

I plan on covering a different technique each month starting with Back Basting.

As much as I love applique, it truly is my therapy, I can't wait to share this with others.  I hope we get a good turn out for the class.  Sign ups should start soon so we will see how it goes.

What is your favorite method of applique?  Do you applique much?  Why or why not?

The class, by the way is called Fearless Applique, and I really believe that trying is believing.

Until next time, keep stitching
