Sue Haidle Applique Workshop

This weekend my guild had an applique workshop with Sue Haidle of Apple Blossom Quilts.

I think we all had fun and certainly learned a lot!

Sue has her own approach to back basted applique and some other unique techniques.  I think no matter how long you have appliqued there is always something to learn or a slightly different way of doing things.

Even learning about a new needle is worth admission!

Our group was mostly intermediate and we were certainly challenged!  (She does do basic or beginner classes too!)

The applique quilt is so very pretty and well done. I don't think there is any wrong way to do applique. What works for the stitcher is what is best. I have tried different methods and am open to new ideas but seem to keep coming back to needle turn. Do you find that back basting wastes fabric?

Enlarged the photo--what a gorgeous Christmas quilt!
Looks like a great experience.

So glad you are up and running (pun) again. I took a back basting applique class once and was not very successful with that technique. But I agree with you that it is good to try new things.

It is great to have the opportunity to read a good quality article with useful information on topics that plenty are interested on.
