Adding color to your applique can be fun and sometimes unexpected. In this in-depth hands-on class, you will learn about realistic shading, bonded appliqué as a base, and step by step coloring. Jill will show the hand appliqué stitches she enjoys using, and you can do the stitching at home. The class sample is a cardinal in winter, but she'll show you her latest dimensional flower and a leaf if you'd like to make a spring or summer scene. Bring your own fabric; see supply list for details.
