This is a really good lesson your provided. One step that I like to do, is to cut out the center of the fusible before pressing on my fabric, you'll only need to have about 1/4" around. This gives the appliqué piece less stiffness to your finished quilt. Give it a try, I think you'll like it. Thanks for the tutorial.


I was going to suggest the same thing that Wendy suggested. Takes the fusible out of the center - donut applique - much less stiffness. Great tutorial.


Very nice tutorial. I like my fusible sold in flat sheets as well, the flippyness of the rolled up stuff is a pain!


Ya know... I just might be able to do this. Maybe some day I will be brave enough to attempt to make a copy of that beautiful floral quilt we fell in love with at Quivey's Grove. I can't wait for the next lesson!


I am definitely going to try what Wendy suggested. Can you imagine how bulky it would be, especially if you were layering applique pieces one on top of the other? I have seen people who are super good at machine applique and they always cut out the center of the fusible to reduce stiffness. Thanks Wendy and Darlene!

Very nice photos, Nicole. I also like the idea of sheets because I don't like those curly rolls of stabilizer!


For a "newbie" (I'm still not buying it!)to the world of fusible applique, you have written the most expert tutorial! Your photos show each step very clearly. Bravo!!
I can't wait until tomorrow's edition!


I really enjoyed reading your instructions. Everything is very clear and includes some humor - and nostalgia. Good job. I'll be looking for more of your teaching.


This was great instructions, I enjoy this method. Can get a lot done quickly.
