Minnesota Quilter's Show - Kathy McNeil Class and Appliquik!

Our Minnesota Quilter's Show was last weekend and I had a blast!  One of my classes was with the amazing Kathy McNeil.  Her pictorial quilts are simply stunning.  I've always wanted to take a class from her.  She was also teaching us how to use the Appliquik tools which I was also interested to learn.  Look at how I managed to turn this crazy shaped piece successfully......YES, it took a LONG time, but was well worth it.

I also managed really tiny pieces!

Starting to add pieces! 

And the octopus is all glued down!  I used Elmer's School Glue and a VERY fine tip nozzle.

Here you can see that I've blanket stitched around all the edges and the background fabric still looks nice and flat. 

I had fun with the eyeball....

The whole top to layer it!

I hope you get to quilt today!


  1. Your appliqué looks fabulous! I’m not familiar with Appliquik. Is is an adhesive/iron in stabilizer?

  2. Tell us more about the tools. What are they? Show a picture?

  3. I also took one of her classes at the show! She is fabulous!
