I absolutely LOVE this video. Cathy is so personable and friendly, it feels like you are sitting in her studio as you learn. She demonstrates the different techniques very clearly on the enclosed pattern. I’ve started my bird quilt and I’m thrilled that I’m able to actually do this! I highly recommend it for anyone who is interested in learning to applique or who wants to improve their skills.
