OLD ENGLISH FLOWER GARDEN: MACHINE APPLIQUE

Big Rig Quilting - John Kubiniec: Flower Garden

(full day workshop)

Machine Applique is a wonderful way to add some intricate designs to your quilts or home dec projects.  We will be working with a traditional block – the Old English Flower Garden Block.

In this class we will:

  • do raw edge applique with the use of fusible web
  • be working with the decorative stitches on our sewing machine as we applique the pieces to our background fabric
  • work with some practice fabric to explore various decorative stitches and settings and then practice a little machine applique
  • work on the actual block

At the conclusion of this class you will have a block that can be turned into a pillow, small wall hanging, or be used as a block in a quilt.
