HAVE YOU TRIED FREEZER PAPER APPLIQUE?

Mary Ellen, Pat, Jan and Mary (left to right) had fun taking the Freezer Paper Applique class recently at the Attic Window Quilt Shop. With this method you get crisp edges, exact placement and the paper is removed BEFORE you place your applique pieces on the background material.
Here, Jan is ironing the fabric to the freezer paper template.

These are some petals waiting for the paper to be removed before placement on the background square. What you see beneath the petals is a design drawn on vinyl to help with placement.

Mary Ellen demonstrated a quick and easy way to make flower stems. It is so easy and does not require additional tools. Thanks Mary Ellen.

This is what the finished block looked like. The women agreed that this method was quick and easy and gave them crisp edges and enabled exact placement. If anyone is interested in the directions for this freezer paper method send me an e-mail or leave a comment on the blog.
  1. New Blog Listings: For all your Blog Hoppers you might want to take a look at a couple new places where the Attic Window Quilt Shop is listed. Paper Panache has a nice listing of blogs. The other one is Quilt Qua and has another fine list of blogs for you to visit.
  2. Another Place to Visit: An Sew On has a nice tutorial for a potholder. Check it out.
  3. Also check out Freda's Hive on my blog list on the side bar. She has a cute Easter Egg Tutorial.
Until Next Time: Happy Quilting
