    This is a beginner's workshop in stained glass applique and delightful projects for any quilter. There is no quilting required and all stitching can be done with straight stitch. You can make it in no time at all with pre-made bias or make your own original bias with the instructions included - there is many advantages of the latter, all revealed in the workshop. Both quilts are fun easy making either an ideal gift for those you love.

    Bias Binding:

    This workshop includes instructions for making your own bias binding and fusible tape as an alternative to purchasing pre-made bias. There are two methods, you may choose either or try both.

    Either method requires the following per quilt:

    If you do not wish to make your own bias binding you will need 9-10.5 yds of Fusible Bias Binding OR Bias Binding & pack of 40ft 5mm fusible tape. Recommended: 11 yds Fusible Bias Binding on reel made by Clover.
