Spring Tulips Hand Applique with Barbara Burnham

Inspired by an antique 1848 applique quilt, these perky tulips are clipped from a larger pattern in Barbara's book, "Baltimore Garden Quilt".
Learn to hand applique smooth curves and soft leaf points.  With freezer paper on top as your guide for needleturn, master the V-points in the tulip and wavy curves of unfurled tulip buds.  Choose from several methods to make graceful curved stems that overlap, and neatly finish the cut stem end.

Honor tradition with red and green, or harnes the power of modern fabrics to fussy cut tulips and bud, or maybe experiment with a broderie perse technique.

Barbara will offer tips and tricks to make your hand applique faster, and how to manage accurate placement of applique pieces without marking the background.

Barbar uses a viedo projection system so everyone can see close ups.
