Baby Quilt With Fusible Applique

9 comments:

  1. So cute! Lucky Emily to have a tutor!! Be sure NOT to use parchment paper instead of Teflon. Parchment will not release the fused object!! (ask me how I know LOL). Anyway, you can use the pin to gently score the back of the piece and then pull the fusible backing from that slit - better than using your fingers or a pin to work on the edges. Does that make sense?? You want to keep the edges pristine so they don't fray.

    I made this very same quilt in pinks for my niece. I will send you a photo.

    Fun video as always. Thanks.

  3. So sweet, the first grandchild is so exciting, making and buying all the special things. Enjoy all the moments, time flys by. I have 5 grandchildren and I just started teaching my 2 granddaughters to sew. So special.

  4. What a lucky daughter-in-law you have. Your knowledge and patience are very valuable for a beginning quilter. I'm not a beginner, but I have learned a lot from you regarding products to use and some embroidery stitches. Thank you. Happy Quilting!!

  5. Please look into using freezer paper and a copier instead of hand tracing your pattern. Lots of info online. So much faster and easier. Cute quilt!

    1. Could you explain how you use freezer paper? If I understand correctly, you would need to use needle turn applique and not fuse?? Please explain...I am very interested. Thank you.

  8. Sew much fun!! I enjoy teaching my Grandchildren to sew. We start sewing when they are 5 yrs. old, boys and girls. We start small, a pillow with a fabric they choose, grandson chose Star Wars last year, and work their way up to a lap quilt. Thank you Anna for sharing your videos, I look forward to seeing what's new at your place.
