Intro to Heat Set Machine Applique

by Grace Errea

In this class you will create an art quilt top with the use of fabrics as an expressive medium.

You will use a pattern of your choice from suggested teacher's patterns,

or, if you have completed the "From Favorite Photo to Quilt" class the previous day (September 29,2017) and have a pattern ready for use, you can bring your enlarged pattern and use it in this class (see below for enlargement guidance).

Note: Do not bring any other patterns from someone else, or created by you elsewhere.

With the pattern in hand, you will learn how to create templates out of freezer paper, and then use these to create a stunning Art Quilt. With guidance, you will choose fabrics in the correct colors and values to get the right results. You will be introduced to the amazing "Heat-Set" Machine Applique technique.

The "Heat-Set" applique technique is easy, foolproof and brand new. It is so totally revolutionary, you will use nothing else once you try it. Grace will introduce the product and the technique to use it. Forget fusible webs (Steam-a-Seam 2, Wonder Under) or glues. Forget millions of pins and nylon thread stitching. This amazing and foolproof technique is very easy to use and it leaves the end result (the quilt and the fabric) soft and manageable.

Another great benefit is that you can do "raw edge" applique and not fight with all those ugly fraying edges! Finally "No-fray raw edge applique".

The teacher will provide a kit with a pattern and the "Heat-Set" product. Kit fee payable in class: $20.00

NOTE: Enlarging your pattern created in the "From Favorite Photo to Quilt" class: If you are planning to use your completed pattern from that class here, please talk to Grace about the proper sizing for your enlargement and your final quilt.
