  • Have you looked for a technique that gives you the greatest freedom in design, yet that is fast and accurate?

  • Have you ever wondered how far you can go into detail with your quilt?

  • How wide can you stretch your wings when it comes to creating your visions?

  • Could this unique technique offer you a new window into your creativity?




  • Do you like appliqué, thread painting (or free-motion embroidery), stained glass technique?

  • Have you ever got frustrated with endless marking, cutting and ironing your appliqué pieces?

  • Have you ever ironed the wrong side of your appliqué piece fusing it straight to your iron instead of the background?

  • Have you ever forgotten to add the seam allowance to your appliqué piece?

  • Have you ever mixed up the thousand numbered tiny pieces?

  • Have you ever wished to use delicate or textured fabrics that were problematic with the fusible web?

  • Have you ever had a fabric that was too thick or too dark to see the design through the lightbox?

  • Have you ever changed your mind about a fabric after the whole piece was already put together?

  • Would you like it if you did not need to unpick a lot of threads when you make a mistake or you change your mind about a colour?

  • Would it help if you did not have to mark your quilt and pieces more than once, at the very beginning of your process, yet you knew exactly where each piece belongs?

  • Would you be relieved if you did not have to bother with the seam allowances for they would create themselves in the process?

If your answer is yes to any of these questions, my Draw-Sew-Trim (DST) method might be a helpful technique for you to try.
