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!)
