I have been sewing and crafting most of my life. I took a quilting class and fell in love. My determination to learn applique lead to my designing Innovative Applique. I wanted: to eliminate tasks like tracing templates and the placement guide, accurate shapes that did not involve years of practice and dimension without stuffing. Innovative Applique answers all those needs. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Basic quilting skills. The instructions included in this pattern make it possible for everyone to be successful if you chose to hand applique. The flower can be hand or machine stitched. It can also be fused. Choose the method that works for you. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Approximately 16"x 18" plus border. There are 12 flowers in the Sew Simple Series. You may chose to make all 12 flowers to create a whole quilt. There is a pattern available on my website for the whole quilt pattern. All 12 flowers, Innovative Applique instructions and whole quilt assembly instructions. The whole quilt pattern is not available as a PDF due to the number of pages you would need to print.
