Appliqué is the general quilt-making term for sewing one fabric on top of another. As an introduction, students examine some basic styles of appliqué work used by American quiltmakers, past and present. Historical and contemporary examples illustrate techniques students can practice while using basic designs provided by the instructor. Then, they plan and complete a project incorporating the suggested techniques. Some prior experience with hand sewing or quilt making is recommended.
