How to Do Needle Turn Appliqué

Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting | 1800 | Episode 1804

Marianne and Mary spend a second episode with Gail Kessler’s beautiful reproduction quilt, Jewels of the Garden. They show some of the modern techniques Gail used to complete her version of the quilt. Many viewers requested a lesson on how to do needle turn appliqué — you’ll learn this quilt technique as well as how to paper piece sunshine ray quilt blocks. The Fons girls suggest using appliqué needles to make the process easier.

Jewels of the Garden is featured in Love of Quilting September/October 2011.
