You may have seen bias tape used as an artistic accent, but in this class it's more than just a focal point; it's the star of the show! Learn all about bias-tape appliqué from Latifah Saafir, one of the modern quilting movement's most innovative designers. Latifah will guide you through two fresh quilt designs. Plus, get tips for perfect topstitching, creative colorways and a chunky binding method.
Latifah begins by showing you how to cut fabric into bias strips, join them together and trim them. You'll use your iron and a bias tape maker to create perfectly folded strips that are ready to appliqué to a background fabric or block.
Learn how to set up your machine (including presser foot and stitch length) for pro topstitching, then apply bias strips to fabric. Get Latifah's tips for using straight-stitch-only machines. Afterwards, put it all together in a practice block.
Latifah puts a fresh spin on traditional double wedding ring quilts with her easy minimalist design. See how to choose colors, transfer the design, stitch the bias-tape curves and add optional fabric inserts to start your quilt.
