2016 Sewing Month Celebration: Giveaway #4

Welcome back to our celebration of Sewing Month 2016!
We hope you’ve been having fun with our weekly inspiration and giveaways. There are so many video gems in our FQS vault (also known as our YouTube Channel) that we’re sharing some more inspirational how-to’s based on a theme. This week?  Applique! We’ve also got a fantastic giveaway, and two people will each win a prize package valued at over $80, which includes the thread-y goodness show below – yum!
AWESOME APPLIQUE!
We know, we know – some quilters consider applique the “A word”. Here at Fat Quarter Shop we think applique gets a bad rap, so we’ve gathered some FQS videos that will help you develop new applique skills or further develop those you may already have.  Take a peek!
See, that wasn’t so bad! Applique – by machine or by hand – can be painless and fun, and results in gorgeous quilts and other stitch-y projects!
