Textured and Quilted Applique

Let’s use some of those built-in stitches to create and texture your fabric for applique.  This fabric will then be used for the tulip petals that will be appliqued down.  

Machines have a variety of applique stitches and we will show you where and how to use some of them.  Even how to get a blind applique look. We will also show you how to use decorative stitches to applique with.  

Once we complete the applique process, we will turn this into a pillow and it will be quilted using the built-in quilt stitches on the Juki DX4000.  Stitch in the ditch quilting is easy when using the exclusive straight stitch conversion feed dog system on the DX4000.  Your stitching will be perfect.

As an educator, I am so excited to share my passion of sewing with you! I have been sewing ever since I can remember. I always wanted to stand out with new trends and styles and the only way to do that was to create my own twist on existing patterns. I was always making clothing and home-dec items for family and myself. When I was old enough I worked in a quilting store and that opened up a completely new world for me. I fell in love with fabric, threads, and patterns. I began writing patterns for purses and quilts and soon after started teaching classes in stores and for quilt guilds. The best part of my job is when I can inspire someone to find the joy in sewing as much as I do.
