Traditional Hand Applique Workshop with Jane Cobbett
During this workshop you will study closely a selection of vintage applique quilts and learn some of the many applique techniques used to make them.
There will be a small wall hanging to make incorporating traditional and modern hand appliqué methods or if you prefer each element can be worked as a practice piece/block and used in future projects of your choice.
Hand applique can be a slow process so some of the elements come with a pattern or method handout, sewing can then be continued/finished at home.
