Great for Beginners or Those Needing a Refresher!
While applique of any type can be a bit intimidating, machine applique with fusible web is very simple and easy to master. It also provides many design options, making it a very handy skill for most quilters.
If you’ve been wondering how to start, or have run into issues, an article by Sherri Sylvester will give you an excellent overview of the process.
She does a nice job of explaining the various stitches that can be used to finish the fused pieces. She also explains how to handle inside and outside corners when stitching around the shapes. (When you click the link below be patient – it takes a bit to load.)
For more in-depth information visit our “Master Fusible Applique with These Short Videos” article.
Edyta Sitar has put together a series of short videos that walk you through the process. You’ll also find a wealth of helpful tips in her demonstrations.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
