    I love to design my own quilt patterns and share them. I am a confessed lover of vintage and reproduction fabrics, my favorite thing to do is applique.

With the Tavern Reds Applique Block I have used two different Applique Techniques.     For the ( Zig Zag shapes ) brown leaves. I used a wash away stabilizer and turned the edges using a wash away glue stick or sew line glue pen. In my previous post I talked about the Glue Baste Applique Technique. Applique Techniques / Pine Valley Quilts

For the center flower I have used freezer paper for the templates and turned the edges with spray starch and a hot iron. More on how to do Spray Starch Applique here.

My next step is to stitch the applique in place. How do you like to do your applique ? Do you have any tips ?

Happy Stitching

    Hi Sharon! I love your work so much!! I just read this post and in it you mention how you do your glue basting; however, when I clicked on the link, it came back with a 404 error message-page not found. I just wanted to let you know it’s not working.

    Take care,
    Eileen

    A lovely centre, lots of curved edges there, wish I lived in a climate where I could use a glue stick when I see a beautiful centre like this. Glenda Australia.

    Lovely block. I am a needle turn stitcher, but I am going to try the spray starch technique the next time I am making an applique block.
