This class introduces the technique of Applipiecing, which can produce wonderful curved lines, and very sharp points with ease. It is a combination of freezer paper applique and paper piecing… with a twist. The use of ombres creates luminosity and movement in this fun, fast moving class. You’ll transfer the design to freezer paper, and iron fabric onto freezer paper pattern pieces. You will be able to see the design develop on the provided design board instantly. Finish by learning the unique way of sewing each piece together. A light box is required to complete this class. (Could be shared)
