Jill's Applique Project
Earlier this month Jill Groom enrolled in Susan Brittingham's online workshop "Upside Down Applique". In no time at all, actually just one week later, I received photos from Jill of her finished project. I was amazed at how quickly she completed her beautiful Hummingbird and morning glory quilt.
Jill sent me two photos which I just needed to share with everyone. The first, prior to quilting....
and another after quilting was finished. I loved how she quilted this!
Here's a closer look at the applique:
Jill said: "I have had a lot of fun doing this class once I got my head around the way the applique is done, it went together so quickly too, loved it."
Jill's quilt is one of the two project options you get to choose in Upside Down Applique and of course, now she has learned the technique, she can move forward and apply it to her own, or other, applique designs. This is certainly a unique method of machine applique, without the use of fusible webbing. Susan teaches you to use the smallest of pieces so it is a great way for using up scraps and small pieces of fabric. Other than a single larger piece of fabric for the background, all other fabrics can be remnants left over from other projects. I'm looking forward to seeing how Jill uses her new found skill in the future.
About Upside Down Applique: Achieve perfect shapes and accurate placement of all your appliqué elements, no matter how small or complex. Susan will help you to add a new machine appliqué technique to your repertoire of quilting skills. Use this method to create multi-layered appliqué motifs by machine when you cannot or do not want to fuse. You will be making a small sample project, which you can later incorporate as a block into a larger project or add borders and binding to complete as a small quilt. Skill level: Intermediate to advanced. Some previous free motion machine quilting or appliqué experience may be helpful. Read More....
