Art Applique Quilt
By McKenna Ryan
In this class you will learn how to applique the McKenna Ryan way. She
uses batik fabric with a high thread count to prevent raw edges from
fraying. You will learn how to build applique pieces on a Teflon
pressing sheet, transfer them to a background, and then using free
motion quilting top stitch them down. This class is for anyone who can
trace and cut out.
Please read your pattern carefully before you begin your project.
You must purchase a McKenna Ryan Kit or pattern and fabric before
class. We have several kits at the shop.
If possible have your background with borders put together if no pieces
are fused into borders. Also trace all pieces on fusible webbing before
class. This will enable us to have time to learn to top stitch the quilt on
the second day. If you have any questions feel free to call me.
