The pattern includes complete instructions for two sizes:
A 13½ x 17½” wall hanging
A 48" x 56" throw
Both quilts are suitable for hand or machine appliqué — even raw edge appliqué — but are easiest to accomplish with appliqué using fusible thread. Complete directions for this technique are included in the pattern instructions.
Why use this method?
It's fast and fun!
Your pieces are fused in place, but just along the very outer edge, so you get the ease of fusible appliqué without the stiffness or flatness that often results when using traditional fusible products.
Once fused, the appliqué shapes stay firmly in place as you stitch around their raw edges with a decorative stitch. No pins needed. And, no shifting or moving — or puckers at the end. Sweet!
After completing the stitching around the edges, you can trim away the extra layers beneath the appliqué shapes.
Techniques used include appliqué (by hand or machine), machine piecing, and quilting.
