I Heart Megan

Project Description

What are you most proud of? This was my first fusible applique project, so I was pleased with how well the applique turned out. Also, my daughter helped me pick out the fabrics, and we both were very happy with how well the colors went together in the finished quilt. What advice would you give someone starting this project? The sashing between the blocks is pieced with a diagonal seam. You have to look closely at the photo to see this. I think I would have been more adventurous in mixing the colors in the sashing if I had it to do over.

What you will need

  • 100% cotton fabrics
  • mostly batiks

very beautiful! I am going to try an applique heart quilt. Have never done an applique quilt.
Debbie C. answered:
Enjoy! Learning a new skill is fun. There are several ways to applique. For this quilt I used fusible applique, which speeds the process considerably. But I enjoy hand applique as well, it's relaxing and portable. Either way, applique is beautiful :)
