Step by step fusible applique with HeatnBond Lite

by Tania Denyer

Yesterday I created the oversize shoofly quilt block. This will be the background to which I’ll add the appliques.

Today I’ll trace the sign shapes onto fusible adhesive in preparation for applique tomorrow. There’s a lot to get through today so let’s get started!

I use HeatnBond Lite for all my applique projects!

Of course, you may choose to create your sign by hand applique.

You’ll find ALL the pattern pieces for the Sewing Happens Here project in the link under materials above. I’ve also placed a few below.

Please note that all the applique shapes have been reversed for you.

Now to the steps…

Using a lightbox (or window) and a pencil, trace the applique shapes onto the paper side of the HeatnBond Lite.

There are a lot of shapes to be cut out, breathe and take your time

Tomorrow I’ll take all the shapes prepared today and applique them to the shoofly block background.

Take a bow, have a rest… that was a lot of work!
