Type: Raw Edge Applique with Decorative Stitching using one of 4 patterns.  Quilted as desired.
Style: Free form.
Technique:  The Aboriginal Series Class will have us using multiple techniques.  All four of these designs use the same techniques to create them.  We will be using fusible raw edge applique, ‘donuting’ each mound and then Ilene will show us how to ‘blanket stitch’ each of these to our design.  Ilene uses a 12 wt thread to do the blanket stitches and Ilene uses a tear-away stabilizer on the back to improve the end result of the decorative stitching.  The quilts are machine or hand quilted as desired with traditional binding.
Experience: Confident beginner to Advanced

In Person: 1st Presbyterian
