Pumpkin Time--Turned-Edge MACHINE Applique with David Taylor | August 7 9:30-3:30

Learn the freezer paper appliqué process for David Taylor's adorable Pumpkin Time block using a pre-turned-edge technique and a machine stitching process. This is the process David uses on his award winning animal wall quilts. David gives lots of demonstrations including his pre-turned edge technique, eliminating the dreaded shadowing and an invisible hand stitch.

In this workshop David Taylor teachs his layered, machine applique technique with simple applique shapes using freezer paper templates and liquid starch. The class will cover how David builds his pictorial wall quilts and how to get beautiful details by letting the fabric choices do all the hard work!
