Class Description

Organic Applique

For this workshop, students may select any project from Kathy Doughty’s Book “Organic Applique”. Class begins with a conversation about color, value, scale and texture to create interest while developing confidence in choosing fabrics. Guidelines for selecting fabric, considering value, scale and more are all reinforced with a language developed at Material Obsession over the last 16 years. Classes then include demonstrations using a few simple techniques that allow for easy expression of personal choices. Techniques include needle turn using wash away stabilizer, boro applique, broderie perse, paper piecing and hand quilting with #8 perle cotton.
The content of Organic Appliqué is designed to inspire experienced applique artists to embrace the freedom of breaking routines. Novice quilters will achieve success with helpful instructions. Everyone will have fun!

5 Day Class size is limited to 12 students.
