Steps

The simple steps for most of these designs are as follows:

Save the image and adjust the size if needed.

After you have the pattern printed out, choose your fabrics.  Decide what materials will be for the pattern and what will be the background fabric.

Then trace the design on to some fusible.  We prefer Heat n Bond because it’s high quality, extremely affordable, and easy. 

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 a needle. 

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

You can find Heat n Bond at a number of shops.  Walmart usually has it in stock as well as Fabric.com and Joann.com.

We prefer to go straight to the source and get it at Therm O Web. They always have the best price and you know the product is fresh.

Next, cut out your design on the outer line or around the drawn line.

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 messy if the adhesive side touches the iron.   Yuck.

Then, with a medium hot iron, press the fusible and count to 3. 

Now that the fusible is on the fabric, cut fabric along the inner lines.  This particular step is what helps the designs look so good and have less fraying or whiskers on the edges.

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

Got the perfect fit?

Wonderful.  Iron press the piece into place to the count of 5. 

Once that is finished it’s time to stitch it down with a satin stitch if you planned to do so.  This is done with a tight zigzag stitch. 

Woohoo, your quilting block is complete.
