Freezer Paper Applique Tutorial

I'm sure that most of the people that come to my blog are not new to applique since that's what I do.  I really can't think of a quilt that I've done that doesn't have applique on it.

But when we started doing the tutorials we decided to back up and speak to quilters who hadn't had a chance to learn applique.  So these are our Basics tutorials.  This latest one is on Freezer Paper Applique.  

All of my tutorials apply to almost any pattern but we chose two simple ones to illustrate the technique.  For the Freezer Paper Applique tutorial we chose, Lilly's Hearts and Sunflower Daze.

We hope you enjoy it.


  1. I have done some applique, but I still love learning some new tricks! Thanks the video tutorial was great!

  2. Another goodie! You're a fabulous teacher! Thanks so much for taking the time to make these videos!

  3. I have never done applique! So I am the oddball! ;)

    Thank you for the tutorial. I would LOVE to make the quilt with the sunflower and birds!!!

  4. Your tutorials are wonderful, thanks for sharing with us!

  5. Thank you for your tips on applique. Especially your secrets for easily reversing the pattern -- I never understood it completely before today. You have the best tutorials on applique!

  6. Thanks. I really am having fun doing them. It's funny. I never thought I had anything to teach because I thought everyone already knew how to do what I do. But I guess I had some really good teachers early on and then have just figured out how to make other things easy as I've gone along.
    I appreciate your comments. Thanks again.

  7. Le mando un saludo desde Sevilla, España. Me gusta todo lo que hace, adoro sus quilts. Inés.

  8. I haven't had a chance to watch this one yet, but I need to make a block for a friend and I really want the applique to come out nice, so will check out your method.


  9. Thank you for posting the tutorial for this. I have not figured out how to do the applique just yet. Thank you for the links and your pictures are great.
