    Cute project, easy to understand & fun instructions. My great-niece wants to sew with me - I think a project like this would be very appealing to her. Clever ideas for embellishment!
  2. Mary Overman


    I enjoyed your class and your tips. The advantage to a online class is you can go at your own pace and repeat any process your working on.
    Thank you so much.

    I like the way you move along, some teachers do so much talking and seems like a long time before they get to the demo parts. Thanks

    I have admired this project for quite some time, too intimidated to attempt it. After reading the introduction fully and realizing it's fusible applique and not all hand work I decided it was time. I really enjoyed the class. The teaching is straight forward and watching the little critters come to life as you piece them together is really fun. I did mine a little different than hers and left the

    words off intentionally but that's the beauty of quilting. We can make each piece as personal as we want. 🙂 Give this a try, if I can do it you can do it. I uploaded a pic of my finished piece to the student gallery too.

    Enjoyed your class, learned a few new things, very easy to follow, enjoyed the button dying and detail and embellishment ideas. Would like to have seen a close up of the wall hanging and of each block

    Loved this class. I have done several “skill builder” classes, and when I’m done all I have are practice scraps. I liked working on a project while learning new techniques and practicing skills. By the last lesson you have more than just the “how to”, you also understand the step-by-step process. I was surprised to see that the pattern was free with the class. Leanne demonstrates ev

    ery step from preparing the background, fusing the the pieces, doing the appliqué, and finishing the binding. Best of all was seeing how she adds little touches that make the characters come alive. She shows you how to stitch every stitch and knot every knot. Leanne offers you options for the products she uses and choices in techniques, so you end up with the skills that fit you best. The photo does not do this project justice. There are so many elements, details and textures that make this project unique. I think anyone from beginner to advanced would enjoy working along with Leanne.

    This video is an excellent machine appliqué class for both beginners and for the more experienced. I love Leanne's method of doing the machine appliqué after the wallhanging is quilted, making it stable enough to be able to appliqué without a stabilizer. I have not done a lot of machine appliqué in the past, in part because I felt it was too stiff, but I am definitely inspired to give this met

    hod a try. Leanne makes it look so easy and her explanation of her methods are so easy to understand. She also shares so many good hints that come from her years of experience and the added touches to finish the project make it special and fun. Watch it, you will enjoy it!
