I Quilt Applique Sign

Create a wall hanging that shouts your love of quilting on this National Quilting Day! Included are appliqué templates to create a number of quilty phrases, such as “i QUILT,” “QT QUILTER,” “LUV 2 QUILT,” and more. Choose your favorite quilting method and sewing-themed fabrics to create a sign worthy of hanging in your sewing space.



Grab the I Quilt Applique Free Pattern and determine the phrase you want to display. The letters included in the pattern are: I (upper and lowercase), Q, U, L, T, V and the number 2. You can combine these letters in a numbers of ways to declare your love of quilting! Or, choose a block letter font on your computer and print your own name, word or phrase to display on the wall hanging.

Remember to use the mirror-image of each letter when transferring the outlines onto the fusible web paper. (I made this mistake and thankfully all the letters but Q looked fine either way! But I did have to retrace the Q in order for it to read correctly after the appliqué was cut out.)

OOPS! Remember to trace the mirror image of each letter for appliqué!

After fusing the appliqués per the pattern, choose the decorative stitch you like best to further secure each appliqué perimeter. The featured pattern showcases a blanket stitch, but a serpentine stitch or fun sewing-themed stitch would also look great!
