Clothing for the Body & Soul

Nigerian Inspired Applique

Students will create a small quilt or wall hanging using Nigerian figures, design and the technique of Nigerian applique, which is a reverse applique technique. Rachel will supply some fabrics and designs. Students may alternatively choose to use Rachel’s vest pattern and the Nigerian applique designs included with that pattern. After creating a design on freezer paper, then transferring it to fabric, the design is hand appliqued to the garment or quilt. Rachel will reluctantly allow students to machine applique, if they must. Although it is possible to present this class as a half-day, students will complete set-up only in a half-day session and for a beginner level class a one-day minimum is recommended.

  • Skill Level: beginner (one-day), intermediate, advanced
  • Length: half-day minimum (see description)
  • Type: Workshop
