We’re so excited to kick off our Member-Instructor Workshops with Diane Fama’s Hawaiian Appliqué -Invisible Machine Technique workshop!
Diane started her quilting career by piecing by machine and quilting by hand, lap quilting-style so it was portable and could be done on the run. She joined her first guild in the 1980s where she learned a variety of techniques, including hand piecing and appliqué, by making blocks of the month to practice her skills and learn different methods. Diane has shown her quilts locally and nationally and has been honored with many ribbons and awards for her various fiber art works over the years.
Remember folding paper several times as a kid and then cutting it into Snowflakes? This same concept is used for Hawaiian Applique to be appliquéd to a background in one of several techniques. We’ll explore the right way to fold and cut the freezer paper to make a perfect Hawaiian appliqué unit. We’ll discuss and perform invisible machine appliqué methods during class to be used to put your Hawaiian design onto the background fabric. Students should be able to complete one Hawaiian applique block during class. These can be made into a single design wall hanging, pillow, or be used as the first of several blocks for a table runner or wall hanging.
We’ll cover circles, curves, leaves, stems, points, inverted points, reverse peep holes. Once you mastered these techniques, you will get the opportunity to try your hand at a simple Hawaiian style motif project that can be finished into a 20-inch square or pillow. If time allows, we will also review how to do machine button hole stitching for a completely different look and feel.
