CMQG’ers Learn to Applique!

June 16, 2011

Sunday, June 12, the Chicago Modern Quilt Guild focused on applique techniques. Sue showed us “dryer sheet” applique, Sarah E demonstrated English paper piecing, Donna talked about raw-edge, fusible applique, and Terri focused on practical ways to label quilts. Members rotated to the four different stations after an inspiring “show and tell.” Check our Flickr site for pictures. As these pictures show, applique was not a new techique for many of our members!

A big thank you to Paper Pieces in Sycamore, IL, for supplying us with hexagon templates for Sara’s sessions!

Another thank you to Saral Paper Corporation for their samples of wax-free transfer paper, which Terri used.

At the July 17 meeting, you’ll have a chance to show off one of these applique techniques. Details will be coming. Meanwhile, think 8″ block!
