  • Fabric scraps from your pooch!

    Every month when my Maltese is groomed, he comes home with a triangular cotton scarf tied around his neck. Many groomers do this for their customers. I save the triangles, wash and iron them, and put them in my stash to use for applique pieces or landscape quilts. The fabric is of good quality and best...

  • Re: Applique Blocks Organization

    @ Sandy .... Can you show us some pics of the how-to? We don't always have the same things in our shops here, but if I can visualise it, I can substitute some of the elements. Please and Thanks!

  • Applique Blocks Organization

    Buy a scrapbook and the clear pocket sheets. Place pieces and pattern for block on one side and on other side the background fabric block and the work in progress as you sew on your pieces. Use extra pocket for your pattern of complete quilt of the book in which you found the pattern. Books come in 12"...

  • Re: What is your favorite applique method / technique?

  • Re: What is your favorite applique method / technique?

    I have tried several different styles since I started the Dear Jane quilt and now the BOM with the applique group. And I still find myself going back to needle turn. I like Ami Simm's invisible applique with the ladder stitch if you have a large shape to applique and if it doesn't have a lot...

  • Re: Applique on t-shirt?

    Nancy I am not real sure what you are asking but that could be because I am really tired. But..... I would stretch the shirt out a little before I appliqued on it. If you do the applique by hand you might put the shirt in an embroidery hoop to keep it stable while you sew. If you do it by machine I would...
