I am excited about our class this weekend on Sat Oct 19 from 10am – 4pm. We are going to learn how to do Applique Quilting using the Freezer Paper Method. This is a great way to make your applique come out great.
If you are interested in learning how to Applique or you have tried this method before, but found it hard…I urge you to come to Liz B. Quilting at 2757 Jefferson Davis Hwy, Ste 117, Stafford VA 22554 for this class! Ann Littleton is teaching this class and is a well-known quilting instructor here in Northern Virginia…here is some more information.
This is handwork, so no need to bring your sewing machine...see the supply list below.

Ann is a graduate of James Madison University, with a BS in Elementary Education and Speech Pathology. She’s been married since 1972, to Joe, a former Navy Pilot. They have 4 grown children.
Because of Joe’s ever mobile military career, and her commitment to raise “somewhat well adjusted” children, Ann’s had many interesting part time jobs, including teaching preschool music for 6 years. They made their final move to Stafford, VA in 2003.
Ann began quilt design in 1986. Articles and photographs of her quilts have appeared in various publications. Several quilts have appeared in national exhibits/ shows. As an experienced quilt teacher and speaker, Ann enjoys combining embellishments and vintage design, along with stories of the friendships of women in her quilts, trunk shows/programs, workshops and patterns.
