Cutting Machine Appliqué and English Paper Piecing:

A two-day workshop

Meghan Gerety

Registration opens August 13. For non-members September 27.


Have you got a domestic cutting machine but haven't really put it to use for quilting?  Let's make that cutting machine (Cricut, Silhouette, Brother ScanNCut or other) work for you!  

If you don't have a cutting machine and are thinking of buying one, you can still participate.  Both a Cricut and Brother ScanNCut will be available during the class for use.  Or, if you have a friend who is attending - Share the machine!  

Cut your pieces for applique and English Paper Piecing in a fraction of the time.  At the end of the workshop, you will have all the pieces you need to create a small masterpiece.  

Work on an appliqué project or an English Paper Piecing project. 

You will learn to:  

·      Download applique shapes for your cutting machine.

·      Understand how to create shapes for your machine. 

·      Cut fabric and templates (freezer paper, soluble stabilizer, cardboard or your favorite template material) for use in appliqué.

·      Cut your own English paper piecing templates.

·      Cut fabric with seam allowance for turned edge applique, raw edge applique, or English paper piecing. 

If you bring a flash/thumb drive, you will receive: 

·      Cutting (*.svg) files for two hexagonal blocks.  With her permission, we will use two blocks from Becky Goldsmith’s (Piece O’Cake) pattern Hexie Garden©.  I will supply the cutting files (*.svg files) for two of the blocks. 

·      If you have purchased the Hexie Garden pattern and bring it with you, I will provide all the cutting files for all the blocks.  Click to purchase from Piece O'Cake or from Amazon

·      Cutting (*.svg) files for common English paper piecing shapes:  hexagons, part hexagons, rosettes, diamonds, and triangles.

·      Bonus:  you will receive *.svg files for a variety of floral and leaf shapes.  These are my own drawings and have no copyright.  You must bring a thumb drive to receive these files.
