Do you feel like your quilt is lacking some designs?
Fill in the blank spots with our various quilting applique patterns. They can be used to finish off a landscaping block or to add to the overall quilt.
Whichever way you decide to implement them, you’ll have unlimited use.
We’ll show you what they look like when finished and go over the easiest way we have found to make the final result happen.
This is what our various patterns look like when completed. You can get the free PDF version of all of these appliques by clicking here:
Once you have the patterns, the sizes can be adjusted if you need to. This is great for when you want a quilt with several silhouettes of different sizes.
Next we’ll walk you through how to use the patterns and bring them into fabric flesh.
When you have the patterns saved and the size is to your liking, print it out. Then choose the fabrics that will be used. Decide what each applique will be and where you want to place them.
Then trace the design onto some fusible adhesive. We prefer Heat n Bond because it’s high quality and extremely affordable.
Next, cut out your design in between the lines or on the outer lines.
Place the pattern on the back of the desired applique fabric. Make sure the adhesive side is against the wrong side of the material.
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 your quilt.
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.
Congratulations, now your quilting block is complete.
These various quilting applique patterns can be really fun to work with. Experiment around and you’ll fine that your own creativity will bring them to life.
Until next time.
