Learn an easy fusible reverse appliqué technique with an option for a faux trapunto effect.
Painlessly create beautiful designs with intricate detail, perfect for quilts, wearables, borders or accents. Long flowing, curly borders or pictures with the sharpest points and thinnest lines imaginable are possible with this easy method using fusible web.
Combine fabrics such as silk and wool for wearables or stick to quilting cottons tried and true. Give your design that extra punch with the added dimension of trapunto.... without all the slitting and stuffing! As an added bonus, it’s super easy to create two images at the same time, one positive and one negative.

Three Patterns are included in this class
This course includes space for you to share your pictures and get feedback from your classmates. The more you contribute, the livelier class will be. Lyric will pop in to give feedback on each picture posted. This platform provides a safe space for a lively and sharing creative community to explore without judgement and competition.
The lessons are available 24/7 and include downloadable practice patterns pdfs to work from. There are short videos to show how Lyric works each step of the process. You have access to all of the lessons immediately upon registration. This class can be completed in one week and will be open for one year (likely much longer.)
Just like in a live classroom, you'll be able to see your fellow students work and discuss how things are going. You'll get encouragement and instruction from Lyric on all the work you post.
Supplies consist of things you already have at hand so you won't be time or money shopping for things you might not use again. The most important supply is an adventurous willingness to explore, grow, and play as you learn to see and create within the framework of abstract design. Doodles will be scribbled, eyes and minds will be opened, and fun will be had. Won't you join us?
