What is Applismith?

To smith means to make or work with. A silversmith works with silver. A goldsmith works with gold. So, an Appliuqesmith works with appliques.  We just shortened it a bit to Applismith so it would be easier to say!

Applismith is a whole new method that will change the way you quilt. It couples the ease of fusible applique with the economy of quilt as you go. These simplified methods give you time to take it over the top with a bit of thread painting and beading. The result is an elegant project.

This technique is easy to learn and lots of fun. Once you learn it, the sky is the limit! You can apply it to all sorts of quilting projects.

APPLISMITH Process

The APPLISMITH Course

What will you learn in the Applismith Course?

You will learn a totally new method of quilting. For the experienced quilter, you may find it a bit backward. Trust me – it works!

The course has six lessons, one a week to give you time to complete each. The lessons are given via Zoom, so you get the benefit of a live instructor. Not to worry, we will be recording the sessions to ensure you won’t miss a thing.

The basic lessons are:

  1. Welcome and selection of materials
  2. Methods to transfer designs
  3. Quilting the blocks
  4. Making the appliques
  5. Applying the appliques
  6. Adding puffy centers

There are three bonus lessons included:

  • Connecting blocks
  • Binding quilts
  • Adding embellishments! 

 

Designs Available

We have lots of designs in the hopper! 

The first one we are offering in this course is the Poinsettia Runner. The runner has three 9-inch blocks, combined on point.

The beauty of these projects is that when you are done, you are done! No more quilt tops waiting for inspiration or travel to the longarmer.
