Give and Take Applique with Daphne Greig

I know, I have been MIA for about a week, but with good reason!   Our little guild has world renowned Daphne Greig visiting us. 

She taught the Give and Take Applique workshop today and it was fantastic. 

Daphne along with her business partner, Susan Purney Mark have produced over 100 patterns and their 5th book is being released this July.

Their patterns are not difficult but produce vivid results and allow you to play with the designs so you can make them your own.

Twenty guild members sat in awe as she explained her simple yet stunning method of Give and Take Applique.   We left with the ability to create our own designs or some purchased patterns to create beauties Daphne has already prepared the design for.

Here is my practice one.  Of course it has circles in it!    I have sketched out a few other designs that I hope to show in the next little while. 

You will have to stay tuned because I also purchased a fine little miracle gadget that I want to tell you about.

Hey, thank for your sweet comment on my blog! Your work is so wonderfully fun and whimsical!

And, hey, how happy am I to see your paintstik tutorial. I have a box full of painstiks for a future project. I can't wait to try them out. :)
