Instructor: Margaret Willingham
Skill level: Beginner.
De-mystify needle-turn applique, step by step, one stitch at a time. Feel the pattern come alive in your hands as you trace, baste, snip & stitch the large sweeping shapes of the 36" x 36" Majesty, Medallion IX. This new medallion pattern (debuted April 30, 2015) is beautiful by itself as a wall-hanging or would give movement to a quilt as it's centerpiece. The larger shapes facilitate the learning process, with enough points and curves to give you opportunities to practice your stitching skills. Build confidence and grow in proficiency with inside and outside points and arcing curves with the tips you will learn. And be carried away by the creative journey of your own beautiful majesty....

Add a touch of elegance to your home with Rose Window, Medallion II. Finished, it is a stunning 21.5" square piece rich in intricate detail that is possible using her reverse applique process. Nothing is cut away until the design is traced and basted. Then watch the beauty of the pattern peek out as you snip and stitch your way with sharp points and tiny round circles. You will love the results you get using this process, and you won't get hung up on the pins. Hand applique is a labor of LOVE, but when you trace, baste, snip & stitch! You can hang it, frame it, drape it on a table or stuff it to make an elegant pillow in your boudoir. Bring the beauty of a cathedral window into your home.
