Applique Tuesday

While I haven't had a chance to get back to my applique projects, I did go to a workshop last Saturday and did some applique a different way. The teacher had us fuse it to a piece of muslin, then thread paint it. Once that is done, we cut it out of the muslin and attach it to a already quilted background. The last step is to embellish the piece.
Here's my flower ready to cut out.  I have to make the background first. I bought some beads to embellish the black center of my poppy. I was going to make a wall hanging, but now I think I"ll use it in a medallion quilt. I have an idea for one.

The teacher, Marguerite Tate, couldn't have made this easier for us. She had kits for every step of the process. They contained fabric already fused to Steam a Seam 2, beads, you name it as to embellishing. We all brought foam boards to place the pattern and muslin on so we could place the pieces. Here's a few done by my fellow students:




She was an excellent teacher! Explained all the steps and was so helpful. Alas, she doesn't have a blog or website, but if you'd like to learn more go here to see a guild post about her visit.  Marguerite's email is there if you want to contact her.

Would love to see your applique or any other eye candy! Leave me a comment and I'll come and visit. In the meantime, I'm linking to Connie's Linky Tuesday and Esther's WOW.

Gorgeous! Sounds like a class I would like to take!
Hi Angie! Your red poppy is quite beautiful. I love its color. I've never heard of that technique. Will you cut around the appliqué or along its edges? Please show us the final piece after you've made the background and sew the poppy on it... I'm looking forward to seeing it!
As for me, I'm still working on my appliqué houses (block 4 is now on my blog).
Have a great day!
