Quilt With Us

Join me for week one - here's a free pattern to get you started! I'll be using this design to demonstrate all the various applique techniques.

This week, I give an overview of some of the methods out there. If you've never tried applique, or are looking for new methods, this will be the place to be.

Here's a link to the tutorial, and here's a link to my Quilt Along group.

I read through the tutorial and found a nice summary of a variety of applique techniques. But.....you left out my favorite and easiest method of freezer paper applique. I cut out my template the exact size of the finished piece and iron it on top of the fabric. I use that as a guide to do needle turn for hand applique, then simply pull off the piece when finished. The freezer paper template can be re-used multiple times. No marking on the fabric, no residue, no weakening the fabric by cutting the underside. This was the method I learned in Elly Sienkiewicz's Baltimore Beauties and Beyond, Vol. I, and I've used it for 25 Baltimore Blocks and am still using it as I applique the border. Unfortunately, it's the best kept secret in the applique world and should see the light of day.
