At Play with Applique
During our SchoolArts/CRIZMAC Folk Art Extravaganza, recently held in Santa Fe, one of the projects our participants worked on was a personal quilt square, inspired by the many forms of quilting, weaving, and applique at the International Folk Art Market. These became personal mementos of our time together.
The word "appliqué" derives from the French and refers to layering pieces of fabric over others and sewing them into place. The pieces may be attached to a background by hand sewing, machine sewing, attached with iron-on webbing, or by the use of fabric glue.
