Giveaway Friday // Machine Applique Kit

Giveaway Sponsor

Cristy Fincher owns Purple Daisies LLC and blogs at Sew Much Like Mom. Before becoming a mom, Cristy was an elementary school teacher.  She loved teaching and is thrilled to have the opportunity to continue to teach, but in a new way. She and her mother Sharon Schamber produce many really wonderful quilting videos for their shop Purple Daisies LLC.

Learn New Techniques!

Double Wedding Ring: In this DVD, Sharon Schamber teaches her curved piecing technique, Piec-lique (piece-li-kay). This technique makes curves easy, fast and fun.  Using Piec-lique with a classic pattern, like the Double Wedding Ring, makes creating the curves and matching the cornerstones so simple.  This is a technique class.  Everything you learn can be applied to other similar blocks and quilts.  Or come up with your own patterns and ideas for the technique.

Magic Triangles: In this DVD, Sharon Schamber teaches her new technique for creating fast and easy triangles.

    Hi Alyssa: I think some more curved piecing and applique would be nice. I really like Purple Daisies and I follow her because I really have gotten some great advice from her. She has really opened my eyes to some different needles which has really helped and hints on the applique. Thanks, I would love to win the applique kit. I have been looking at it on her website… k
