E-zine Free Quilting Pattern Before Any One Else

“Daughter's Butterfly”

Let the wings bring a smile to your face.

This is a simple applique quilting pattern that brings in the spring time sunshine.

Here are the steps to complete it:

Save the image and adjust the size if needed. This typically makes an 6x6” block when the applique is done on its own.

• Trace the design onto lite fusible adhesive. Preferably, Heat n Bond ultra-hold. (Lite hold may be used if the applique will be stitched down.)

• Cut the pieces around the lines. Leave the inner designs to be cut away later!

• Select which fabrics will be the pieces of the applique and which will be the background.

• Iron press fusible onto the back of desired fabric.

• Now cut fabric on the line of the design that was traced (as well as the inner design) so none of the ink shows on the interfacing paper.

• Find ideal placement for the applique pieces on the background fabric.

• Peel off the paper from the fusible and iron press applique into place.

• When all the pieces are pressed in the correct places, sew them into place with a tight zigzag stitch (aka. Satin stitch) around the edges of the applique pieces if lite hold was used. If ultra-hold was the fusible, then leave the design as a raw edged applique.

Now your quilting block is complete and it can be used any way you see fit.
