This class will be held over two Saturdays, June 4th and June 11th. Kathy will setup a Slack chat group students to ask questions and chat in between the sessions and for one month following the class. Students will also get access to Kathy’s online class lesson for one month after the class.

Master the Apliquick method for turned-edge appliqué. The innovative Apliquick tools provide unprecedented ease and precision for preparing fabric for hand or machine stitching – even miniature-sized. Kathy has taught many appliqué techniques over the years but when Apliquick came to North America in 2013, it was a game changer. Suddenly, turned-edge appliqué was accessible and achievable. Apliquick is a technique that is easy to learn and quick to master. You will get good results right away and with a little practice, you will be able to turn pretty well anything! If you have always wanted to learn turned-edge appliqué – or struggled with it in the past – this class is for you.

Registered students will be eligible for 10% off anything in Kathy’s online store.

Apliquick rods are available an Kathy’s website, https://kathykwylie.com/product-category/apliquick

Saturday, 9:30 AM – 4:00 PM

So, you finished your blocks and the quilt is done….oh, you actually expect me to sew the blocks together? AND it needs a border? So you just cut an interesting fabric into larger strips add it on all sides and call it done. If this describes your quilt making, you are missing an opportunity to add a little extra to your quilt and create something stunning. Our class will explore options that use simple techniques to create the WOW factor.

In class we will learn a method for making a simple block. These blocks could be used to make a quilt, but we will focus on how they can make stunning borders.

Once the basic method is learned, we will explore at least 6 variations. After seeing these possibilities students that bring a finished top can begin working on planning and executing blocks for borders on their specific quilt.

These blocks look like three-dimensional pyramids—and they also appear to float above the surface of the quilt! Emerald City blocks are strip-pieced and easy enough for beginners to construct. Experienced quilters will learn something too: how to harness the power of consistent value placement to create a sense of three dimensions. Careful attention to value will make the illusion appear. A shadowed setting visually “lifts” them off the surface of the quilt, and we’ll talk about how to choose fabrics to make it work.  So elegant, so dimensional, so easy—and so exciting to see the results!

Yardage Requirements:

For blocks:

  • ½ yard (total) light fabrics
  • ½ yard (total) dark fabrics
  • 1 yard (total) medium fabrics

It’s important to have different values (light / medium / dark) within each block.  You can use as few as three different fabrics.  It can also be given a scrappy look with lots of different values, as long as there is a distinct difference between light, medium, and dark within each block.

If you are using small scraps, be aware that this quilt is strip-pieced; you will need to be able to cut strips at least 18” long.  Fat quarters (or jelly rolls) are great!

For background and sashing:

  • 1½ yards sashing and border fabric
  • ¼ yard “shadow” fabric

Note: “Shadow” fabric may be black, or it can be a darker or grayer color than the sashing fabric.  The shadow fabric should look like the color of a shadow on the sashing fabric; ignore the color of the block fabrics.  If in doubt: bring black, muddy green or purple, or charcoal gray!

Tools and Notions Required:

  • Rotary cutter, mat, and 6” x 24” ruler
  • Triangle ruler, Omnigrid # 98 or 98L
  • Design wall (a large flannel-backed vinyl tablecloth works great!)
  • Sewing machine
  • Sewing basket supplies, piecing thread, etc.

Optional Items–Recommended but not Required:

  • Reducing lens, door peephole or binoculars
