Registration opens January 19, 2023 for AQG members and February 19, 2023 for non-members.

Learn award-winning quiltmaker and nationally certified quilt judge Kathryn Zimmerman’s methods for machine applique with the “turned and glued” method.  Other techniques of fused raw-edge and double blanket stitch applique will also be demonstrated.  Several quilts will be shown with these machine applique techniques.

Practice learning the process before applying to your pattern.  The applique shapes will be machine stitched with a blind hem or zigzag stitch to your background fabric.  Learn tips to keep your background fabric smooth and flat.    Kathryn will work with each individual student to get the best applique stitch possible from your machine.  Threads and tension will be discussed.   

Your pattern will contain all the necessary shapes to learn techniques for shapes with points, curves and circles as well as bias stems.  Kathryn will have a $5.00 class kit available for purchase with applique foundation material, stabilizers, pattern templates, the turning tool and freezer paper.  Please bring cash or a check payable to the instructor.
