Top Stitching Raw Edge Applique Class

In this class you will learn how to top stitch raw edge applique quilts using free motion and matching the thread color to the applique piece. This is done through all three layers of your quilt (top, batting and backing), so you will be topstitching your applique and quilting your quilt at the same time.


You do NOT need to know how to do free motion quilting to attend.


After lots of practice, we will make a small pumpkin wall hanging ready to be bound at home.


Kit fee includes:

Pumpkin pattern

Steam a Seam 2 Lite

Quilt top background

Fabric for applique pieces

Batting and


(You supply the binding to be finished at home)
