Technique Series: Raw-Edge Applique


There are several stitches you can use to sew down cut edges of applique.  In this class, you will learn the techniques we learned from Susan Cranshaw of Susan Cranshaw Designs.

The finished applique will show dimension and you will learn to do some fine free motion quilting around the edges of the applique.

We are not creating the applique in this class, so please come with a laser-cut fusible applique or one that you have previously applied fusible and cut the designs.

Instructor Bio: Linda was very blessed to host Susan Cranshaw during the last years she taught in Wimberley. Susan perfected her applique techniques and we learned so much from her about application, threads, needles, bobbins, sewing, stabilizers, battings and more. Though Linda doesn't feel qualified to take over those classes, she is honored to share with you everything she learned from Susan's classes.
