Turn Up Your Needleturn Skills

Tile Tango is a needle turn hand appliqué class. You will use the needle to turn the seam allowance under and sew it in place with an invisible appliqué stitch. This project is in The Quilter’s Practical Guide to Color, so of course Becky will give you excellent ideas on how to color your quilt that include backgrounds, flowers, leaves, and stems.

You will see the benefits of taking time to audition your applique pieces before you begin sewing. And, bonus! I will show you how to use a simple folder lined with felt to keep your appliqué pieces together and protected while you sew.

No matter your skill level, this class will teach you everything you need to know to become a confident appliquér.

I know that applique is the is the A-word for a lot of people but please trust me - you can do it, and you will love it! -Becky

Hear from Becky's Skillful Students

Confidence-Building

Becky is a warm, informal speaker, and at the same time very organized. We were impressed with her careful allotment of time to each phase of building our Bullseye panels, giving clear instruction, then having you come back together for each section to be fully explained and questions answered.

You come away with confidence to finish your Bullseye, but also collect so many tips and suggestions from her lifetime experience as an educator, author and business owner.

A thoroughly positive experience!

Great for All Ages

My mom and I took an appliqué class of Becky’s at the 2010 NQA Quilt show in Columbus, OH.

It was such a delight to see all those instructions in the Piece o Cake books come to life!

It was a very informative class....and taught by a very personable instructor!  For us, that class was the high point of the show!!!

Trust a Pro

Becky is not only a friend but one of the best teachers I have ever had the pleasure of working with. She is upbeat and always supportive of her students. She offers help and encouragement to everyone in her classes.

Becky gives clear and easy-to-follow instructions in class and she shows you exactly what you need to see to be successful. She listens to her students, and answers questions thoughtfully. Becky’s students finish class with big smiles on their faces and confidence in themselves.
