Applique Wall Hanging

In this class you will make your choice of these three wall hanging kits. You will learn my unconventional, but not difficult, construction method. It’s also a good way to use some of the decorative stitches on your machine, but they are not necessary if you don’t have them. There is some free motion stitching on them which adds a lot, but is not absolutely necessary either.  This is a two part class, the first class is June 13 and the second class is June 20.
