Raw Edge Circle Appliqué Quilt

Always wanted to master applique?
Raw Edge applique is one quick and easy method and a great introduction to this technique that I'll be teaching next week in my one day class in Manhattan.

Circle Appliqué Quilt- $70

Saturday, 17 January 2015 - 11.00 am to 5.00 pm, The City Quilter, Manhattan

Learn to cut perfect circles and add them to a whole cloth quilt base using a raw edge applique method, then machine quilt to finish your baby/lap quilt By the end of the afternoon you could even be ready to bind your finished baby/lap quilt.  

Open to anyone who knows how to use a rotary cutter and sewing machine and can sew a straight seam.

Here's pics of my class sample, currently on display in the store.
