You may adjust the size if needed and have unlimited use of this design.  Since you will be able to do so, this flower can be used all over your quilts in different sizes and colors.  It will be truly a wonderful work of art.

The How To

Once you have the flower pattern saved and the size is to your liking, print it out. 

Then trace the design on to some fusible adhesive.  We prefer Heat n Bond because it’s so easy to work with and extremely affordable. 

If this is the brand you choose, use ultra-hold for non-washable wall hangings and lite-hold for anything that will see the washer and/or be sewn. 

The lite-hold is the only one that can be stitched down.  We don’t want to gum up your needles or cause a simple project to be the one to make you scream at the top of your lungs. Don’t want to scare the neighbors. ;) 

Next, cut out your design on the outer line.  The inner line will be cut later.

Place the design on the back of the desired fabric.  Make sure the adhesive side is against the wrong side of the material.  It could get mess if the adhesive side touches the iron.   Yuck!

If the gooey stuff touches the iron there are two ways to remove it. 

1.    Iron the sticky parts onto a piece of blank paper.  It works best if the iron is still hot.

2.    After the iron is completely cool, use rubbing alcohol and a cotton ball to rub it off.  This usually works well when the iron has a Teflon coating.

Then, with a medium hot iron, press the fusible and count to 3.  Sounds like 1 blossom, 2 blossom, 3 flower. 

Now that the fusible is on the fabric, cut the fabric along the inner lines of the drawn fusible. This particular step is what helps the designs look so good and have no fraying or whiskers on the edges.

After that is accomplished, arrange the applique in the ideal position on the background fabric.  

This could be on your quilt fabric or other fabric project.

Have the ideal placement?

Great!  Peel off the paper backing and iron press the piece into place to the count of 5. 

If you planned to stitch the applique down, now is the time to do so.  This is done with a tight zigzag stitch, also called a satin stitch. 

Now, the flower has been brought alive on your quilt.

Where

There are many places where this flower can be placed.  As an easy quilting pattern, it’s ideal placement could be to the corners of a quilt or all over.  It can even be used as an applique on some handbags or jeans. 

Where it’s put is really up to you and your creativity.

Remember, your only limitation is your imagination!
