Applique Lessons


Mostly tips and tweaks for hand applique, which is what I prefer, but there are some for fusing and machine stitching too.

The big thing to remember with applique is that any line drawing can be appliqued, and any technique of applique can be used for any applique design.

Quilter’s Knot

Turning, Turning

I use this knot for everything when hand sewing, and I vary the number of wraps around the needle to suit the fabric, particularly when hand quilting when the knot has to be buried in the quilt. Loose weave fabrics need more wraps that tight weave. The best fabrics need just one or two wraps around the needle.
