Review of a Free Online Quilting Class
This review is the latest installment of the 2016 Craftsy's Block of the Month Class.
Get ready for some wonderful information broken down into monthly classes, for FREE!
April's Lesson - Appliqued Border
To start we begin with cutting strips for the stem pieces.
There are very specific directions on how to cut theses strips and it explains why!
Then we learn how to do an applique without the use of fusible adhesive.
This is followed by the applique pieces that use the fusible web (fusible adhesive).
With this step there is a helpful hint on how to get the fusible adhesive paper off of the piece you want to press. It's a great tip, but I usually just fold my piece a little till it releases.
Next, the lesson goes over placement of the applique pieces before they are made final.
There is also a tip about stablizer.
Now stabilizer is tricky. Some are tearaway and others are trim away. Be very careful with which one you are using!
Lastly, we finish this lesson with finishing the applique border. Now that we’ve finished April’s lesson, we’re really looking forward to May’s Modified Piano Keys lesson.
We'll be giving reviews of this class throughout the year and other quilting classes too!
Be on the lookout for next month's issue for updates.
Wrap UpWe hoped you enjoyed this month’s issue of our quilting newsletter.
