Basic Skills Necessary:

  • The instructions included in this pattern make it possible for everyone to be successful.
  • Some experience in quilting will be helpful to complete the project.

Pattern Description:

I was determined to applique. I tried a number of different methods but my results left a lot to be desired. So I developed Innovative Applique.

No tracing, no pins, no ripping anything out of the back of your work. This method increases your accuracy and productivity. Beginners are surprised they can applique. Experienced quilters find they can complete projects much faster.

An added bonus creates trapunto without stuffing. You will be amazed.

The products I recommend make the process so easy.
