Appliqué with Sue

My quilty friend Sue is AMAZING at machine blind appliqué. You really can’t believe she does it on the machine!! This is a quilt she made…on her machine! She’s crazy talented! (It was quilted by Gina Allen and made in a class with Kathleen Baden.)

I just can’t get over that she does it on a machine. She preps everything with the freezer paper method and then uses a blind hem stitch with transparent thread. Gorgeous!

Then I found out she does classes!! So excited! So we got together and I got to work.

She had made a little tea towel and I made a version of that!

I’m in this group called Handmade Birthday Club and each month you send a handmade birthday present to the birthday girl. This month is Courtney, so I picked colors she would like. She loved it! I still cannot get over how hidden the stitches are.

Thanks Sue for an awesome class! If you’re local, she’s teaching it at The Little General. One more picture!

  1. That is the most amazing quilt I have ever seen! Is the the Westie Sue?? If so, she would have to be amazing, right? What foot is that? I need to do this with her. ASAP, of course, she might quit teaching ; ( I can’t even appliqué at all.

  2. Fab. Most definitely with a capital. I have a book by Dawn Cameron Dick called Invisible Machine Appliqué and it looks like the same technique. Worth buying if still available.

  3. I love my tea towel so so much! Thank you! It looks beautiful hanging in my kitchen, and I love that I learned a great appliqué trick too! Thanks!

  4. You are right…those stitches are truly invisible…i must get going on learning my machine..i need motivation.
