Trace the pattern onto fusible web.
Once you have that traced, you will fuse it to fabric.
When you have fused all of your fabric to your fusible web, you'll cut your pieces out. I use teflon scissors. More on those later.
Here it is with the fusible web still on the back.
Next you put The Applique Pressing Sheet on top of the pattern.
As you see, you can see through the sheet with the pattern underneath. So now you're ready to fuse. You add your first piece. I usually add the pieces that are in the back of the design first and build it up. It is much easier to do it this way than to add pieces underneath after you fuse the top pieces. I think of it as building a cake. You gotta start at the bottom and go up!
You continue fusing until all of your pieces are fused to the sheet. Let it cool off and gently peel it off of the sheet. You entire project is now in one piece, everything is exactly where it should be and
This is a project Veronica just finished . It is one part of a block of the month pattern by Pine Needles.
With The Applique Pressing Sheet, you can get very detailed with your quilts. Have fun and tomorrow we'll show you lots of pictures of quilts that Veronica has made.
