This method is sweeping the appliqué world. Small, complex pieces are easy to turn with these tools from Spain. We will use special interfacing for our template material. Edges will be swept over the interfacing and left in place, unlike freezer paper that has to be removed.  You will love the extra loft and dimension this adds to each feather. Your beautiful birds will be made as free objects, ready to place on the background scene or a focal block of your new quilt. Kathy will demonstrate shading with her optional fabric paint crayons.
