Tuesday Tip - Applique the McKenna Ryan Way
Posted by pacificfabrics on Tuesday, May 10th, 2011
Ellen, an extraordinary quilter who works & teaches at our Everett store, stitches up gorgeous McKenna Ryan quilts that we all covet! The picture above is Home Tweet Home, one of McKenna's newest designs. So new that Ellen hasn't made one yet! So that you can make gorgeous quilts, too, I asked Ellen to share a few hints with us.
Ellen loves Steam-a-Seam Paper Backed Fusible Web for this kind of easy applique. Here's how it works:
1. Trace your applique designs from the patterns onto the paper side of the web.
And, of course, Ellen has a superb tip to make it even easier for you!
1. Use Bear Threads' Applique Pressing Sheet to lay over the finished design from the pattern. You will be able to see through the pressing sheet.
If you would like some hands-on, in person help while you're learning the art of fusible applique, check out our Applique the McKenna Ryan Way classes at Everett with Ellen or at Bellevue with Cheryl!
