Scrappy Applique with Shannon Brinkley



Join quilt/fabric designer, author and national teacher Shannon Brinkley for a full-day class, with lunch included (we will request any special needs closer to the class date),  covering her signature technique: Scrappy Applique. It is quick and simple to pick up, yet allows for a lot of creative possibilities – and it’s a perfect for a variety of skill levels. 

Since the Scrappy Appliqué process is the same despite the template chosen, each student chooses their favorite template/pattern, and goes through the whole process together. Every student's project is totally unique, and it is so much fun to see what everyone creates! 

Appliqué need not be tedious, confusing, or monotonous. Explore several creative appliqué finishing options, including Shannon’s Faux-Needleturn technique, no-fray raw-edge appliqué, finishing appliqué edges with hand or machine embroidery, and her fun "Peek-a-boo" Reverse appliqué method.

About the instructor
Shannon Brinkley is a quilt / fabric designer, author, and national speaker and teacher based in Austin, Tx.

Shannon has always been drawn to any craft involving textiles. As a young girl, she explored weaving, embroidery, knitting, garment sewing, among others, and began quilting in college, where she fell completely in love with the craft. Inspired by her love of fabric and the texture, Shannon wrote the book Scrappy Bits Applique, where she teaches how to turn scraps of fabric into gorgeous, modern art quilts by collaging a variety of fabrics, vintage and new, with different colors, tones, and patterns to create really interesting and unique textures.

A former elementary teacher, teaching remains a huge passion of Shannon's, and she speaks and teaches her modern quilting techniques all across the United States.
