Winter Mini Quilt made easy with Simply Applique
What is Simply Applique?
Simply Applique is a program Sulky began with Shabby Fabrics. Together, we curated four kits to represent the four seasons: winter, spring, summer and fall. Sulky chose rayon threads to coordinate with the fabrics chosen for each mini quilt, including a few metallic spools in the mix.
Each kit comes with laser-cut applique pieces that are already treated with Soft Fuse, a fusible web that is super easy to use. Soft Fuse is also available separately, in a small or large roll or pre-cut sheets. You’ll love how lightweight it is for applique projects, and it doesn’t gum up the needle as you sew.
The kits also come with backing and background fabric, along with enough fabric to create the binding and hanging sleeve. With everything you need at your fingertips, the applique couldn’t be simpler. This leaves you tons of time to have fun adding decorative stitches to the project.
Winter Mini Quilt
In this webinar, you’ll learn the process for fusing the applique pieces in units to create the winter mini quilt. We’ll also give you some tips and hints for using a few fun products that make the process easier, too. (Hint: tweezers are your BFF!)
Then it’s time for the stitching. We’ll create a stitch sampler you can use for this and future projects. You’ll see how fun it is to combine stitches and learn how they form to anticipate the movement of the needle. Switch thread colors and add metallics ’til your heart’s content.
Then you’ll learn how the whole project comes together. Make it into a mini quilt or add the applique to other projects to decorate for the season.
