You may wonder why Quail…? well, I think they are funny, and I see them every time I'm in New Mexico. They scurry through the undergrowth with their babies following behind them… their little legs going ninety to the dozen.
Once again we are having an event in Alamogordo in July and I'm donating my time to raise money for the young people in the district.
This will be a 4 hour class. I will teach a number of techniques in this class which is predominantly machine applique. I believe you can achieve fine applique if you follow the steps accurately and slowly.
But we will do some drapplique, interesting applique quilting and it is also a design class…so you can design your own applique for the back of the quail.
I make videos for some of the techniques in the class… this one is the blanket stitch and on the Janome Horizon there are 8 blanket stitches. My favorite is the single stitch…. although I did do several others because I'm testing the machine.
I've quilted the quilt quite heavily and I'm quite happy with the design.
Now to finish the notes….
