"Sunbonnet Sue on the Water" Wall Hanging Pattern...... she is at the tiller of her little sailboat, breezing along!  This is the fusible web applique' technique in progress! Fun!


Today's the day I get to give you some hopping good information about two of our favorite applique' techniques:

Freezer Paper Applique' - which looks just like needle-turn and other "prepared finished edge applique'" techniques great for bed quilts and all other quilts.....


Fusible Web Applique' - which is a raw edge technique great for art quilts and wall hangings.

You can download free pdf copies of these tutorials below:
