In this 3-hour workshop you will learn the technique of machine appliqué using the zigzag satin stitch, practicing inside and outside corners and smooth rounded edges.  With your newly learned skill, you can create your own special appliqued projects.  
Paige will discuss preparing your fabric, applying fusibles and stabilizers, and tips for perfect placement of your applique shapes.
Pre-fused and pre-cut Cute as a Button motifs from Modern Plus Sign Quilts (Stash Books/C&T Publishing Feb. 2018) will be provided so students can get right to work in class.  
A sewing machine with adjustable zigzag capability is required.
