Join Megan in this technique class to learn various different ways of achieving effective hand applique results focusing upon both technique and design. 


Work from Megan’s popular block, Mini Mandalas, you will cover;


  • Template preparation
  • Fabric choice
  • Fussy cutting
  • Needleturn applique 
  • Turned edge applique
  • Finishing options, including hand quilting. 


The Mini Mandalas block can be made into a 13-block quilt or a 3-block table runner. For those willing to embark on more, the block can also be incorporated into Megan’s latest quilt, Applique Sampler with a Twist.


Alternatively class participants are welcome to work on their own projects using the class for guidance on technique and colour inspiration. 


Megan is best known for her precise applique and effective use of contemporary fabrics. Megan’s latest applique quilt, Applique Sampler with a Twist, was awarded Best Contemporary Quilt Award (Professional) and third place Combined Pieced & Applique Quilt (Professional) at the Sydney Quilt Show 2017. 


Megan teaches beginner and applique classes at Material Obsession in Sydney and is currently President, Quilt NSW (The Quilters Guild of NSW, Inc.). You can follow her and her student’s work on Instagram @meganmanwaring.


We are thrilled to have Megan teaching at Cutting Cloth!
