Marking your interfacing for art quilt appliques by Claire Haillot November 10, 2021 written by Claire Haillot November 10, 2021 292 Welcome back to my blog post week where I show you how to make the stunning Ariel quilt pattern by the very talented Lise Bélanger. Now in my last two posts, I introduced the SEW EASY Colour & Tone Guide and Tonal Estimator, as well as the UNIQUE Lighting Foldable LED Desk Lamp and how great a tool it is to prepare the pattern for fabric placement. In today’s post, I’ll show you what you need to prepare all your appliques. You probably all guessed by now that you need interfacing to make this project. I decided to test out HeatnBond Feather Lite Iron-On Adhesive. It is a lightweight iron-on adhesive that doesn’t add extra weight or stiffness to the project. The solid sheet adhesive and paper backing allowed me to easily draw my pieces; I didn’t need a light table to see the design underneath. Once applied using the directions on the package, it was also easy to quilt. Marking your HeatnBond interfacing for Art quilt appliques When you use HeatnBond Feather Lite Adhesive iron-on, you’ll notice that the interfacing is attached to one of the papers and the other piece of paper is removable. That piece is there to protect the interfacing before you use it. I remove that piece before I mark my interfacing to ensure that I mark the correct one, hence the one that is attached to the interfacing. I simply place it on top of the design and mark my pieces. I thought I would make this part easier by preparing a video explaining how to mark the Ariel pattern by Lise Bélanger onto your interfacing. Categorizing your pieces by color groupings Now for this project, I divided my interfacing into color categories just so that I wouldn’t get too lost. Keeping the color codes in sections made it easier for me during the process of getting the interfacing onto the fabrics. I made another video to show you how to determine when you need to begin your excess seam allowances around your pieces. So, get all your interfacing marked using the HeatnBond Feather Lite Iron-On Adhesive and cut the pieces out leaving at least ¼’’ around all your marked edges. Remember to keep all your pieces categorized by fabric color. I will see you tomorrow to get those onto the fabric and then on your background fabric.
