    First Applique Class Project

    This is what we did in the first applique class I took several years ago.

    I apologize that I do not remember the teacher's name - I do remember that she was excellent - and that we learned a lot!

    I also remember that she told us to wash our fabrics first - and the Moda Marble yellow had a LOT of excess dye in it - and interestingly/surprisingly enough - the other colors did NOT color the water.

    Such a beautiful start and so precise! I only applique if I really have to. I am getting more confident though. Practice makes perfect. I can't imagine how much more you have accomplished since the class.

    You did lovelly work. I also like applique but I need a better set of reading glasses before I can get back to it Aging eyes make detailed work difficult. Did you make that block only or do you have enough for a quilt?

    You can certainly applique! I took a class & tried really hard, but did nothing close to perfection like yours, way to go!

    Very pretty! So is it going to have many more blocks to make a quilt or a single block for a pillow?

    Thank you for looking - it was fun - but that's the last applique I've done (unless one counts applying a patch to something!)

    The instructor's name was Leslie Hickland

    I really enjoyed her class - it was well organized and she was a nice lady! (She said I was doing 'a good job' - so, of course, she is a nice lady!)

    You did a great job. My applique doesn't look near that good.
    Be the best that you can be at everything you do.

    It's great! I'm just starting something similar so hope I can do as well.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)
