Class - Silk & Salvage - Silk Appliqué
Silk Appliqué with Silk and Salvage by Sue Fox and Julia McLeod
Sunday November 17thth 1.30 to 4.30 pm
Learn & practice great techniques for making new quilts from rescued materials–– Sue Fox and Julia McLeod will share successful hand- and machine appliqué techniques for using silk fabrics in your quilt making.
Silk is quick to fray, slippery to sew and sometimes hard to cut accurately.
Using freezer paper, satin stitch, fusible adhesives and interfacings, we'll show you how to manage all these challenging qualities.
Do you have a stash of Grandpa's ties? Leftovers from making silk pillows or garment making? Old silk scarves? In this afternoon workshop you can combine an array of fabrics from silk ties and garments to cottons from your stash to create a beautiful pillow cover – or make a start on something larger like our Pomegranate Quilt shown here.
