Denise Oyama Miller

Denise Oyama Miller will be teaching her raw-edge, appliqué technique that adds a little bit of color between the pieces in your appliqué, giving your quilt sparkle and crispness. Any appliqué can be done using this approach, whether it is traditional appliqué or an art quilt. This class is perfect for all skill levels from the enthusiastic beginner through the advanced quilter looking for another technique to enhance their toolbox of skills.
