Reverse Hand Applique with Dawn Cameron-Dick
Classes with Dawn Cameron-Dick • Educational, G, 01-Aug-2013
We caught up with Dawn at the Festival of Quilts back in 2011, but she was there again this year!
Don’t worry if you can’t draw. You can find inspiration everywhere – all you need to do is be able to trace it, and for Dawn, the inspiration came from her ironing board cover.
Dawn also liked to ‘thumb’ press, use a milliners needle and work with thin 60w thread.
You can enjoy more of her workshops throughout the site. You could:

watch her Invisible Machine Applique video
enjoy her lecture on needles and threads
