Folk Art Applique

16 x 16 Hand Appliqued, Hand Quilted

Folk art -art made by us folks- doesn't have to follow stuffy rules like size or scale. It is okay to make a giant sunflower and a cat as big as a purple house. Sewn with a running/gather top stitch that adds a decorative detail to the appliques. It is relaxing to not worry about hiding stitches. I will be teaching this class on April 3rd at Elaine's Quilt Block in Salt Lake City, Utah. Click here to see another quilt using this technique--I'll be teaching both designs at Elaine's along with an antique quilt study class on the 4th. I'll also be doing quilt appraisals. Come join me.

  1. Very pretty. Can you imagine sunflowers as tall as a house. That would be amazing.
