Art Applique

Let Desiree show you how to apply these pencils to look painterly and dimensional. Learn the same technique I showed on Quilting Arts TV and in their magazine!  I will be teaching you some faux techniques including blending to give a more realistic look to your designs. Once sealed these pieces become washable and permanent. It's tons of fun and can be applied to other surfaces and to your art quilts to add details and textures. No ART EXPERIENCE NEEDED!! Join us for a stress free half day applying color and textures to our fabric. Depending on how fast you work your block should be well on its way in class and you will receive instructions for a table runner. There will be a kit fee with will include use of Desiree's supplies along with a choice from one of four pre-quilted blocks of Desiree's Flower sketches all stitched out and ready for applying your color.
