Appliqué seems to have been a popular class and it's ignited a creative boom within the member's club. Ann completed not one, but two cushions and it was a difficult choice to decide which one to share with you. As I'm a cat lover, I've gone with her beautiful cat. Ann even made the cushion pad to go inside.
Although we are moving onto a different project this month, if you'd like to have a go at appliqué, the class is still available here. I have a feeling the club member's will enjoy having an excuse to do some more.
