Essential Techniques

This section describes the essential techniques you will need to create the blanket stitch appliqué for this project. More general techniques required for quilt making, such as adding borders, quilting and binding are described in General Techniques.

Stick-and-Stitch Technique


Most of the appliqué patterns are printed full size as they appear in the quilt, although some will need to be enlarged. These patterns are used as a reference when arranging the separate pieces of fabric to build up the final appliqué design.

When using the stick-and-stitch technique, the appliqué shapes must first be reversed. The design is then separated into the various shapes that make up the final image. Any shape that is overlapped by another will need an extra amount added, about ¹⁄8in (3mm) wide to the edge that will be overlapped. This is shown as a dashed line on the separate shapes and should be included when the shapes are traced on to the paper side of the fusible web. For each of the designs in the book, all the reversed pieces are shown labelled and grouped ready for tracing.


With this technique most of the inner section of the fusible is removed before the outline is ironed on to the fabric. If this inner area is large enough, I have placed one or more smaller outlines within it to be traced as positioned. Once that area of web has been cut and removed from the large drawn outline, the smaller shapes marked on it can then be cut out as usual.


1 Place the fusible web smooth side uppermost over the reversed shapes of the design as given in each project. Trace each section including any dashed areas. Mark the grain line arrows and the numbers on the tracing, keeping these at the very edge of the shape rather than in the centre, as the centre area of fusible web will be removed later. The shapes can be traced closer together but leave about ¹⁄2in (1.3cm) between each traced shape to make cutting out easier. Cut out each traced shape roughly ¹⁄4in (6mm) beyond the outer drawn line (see Photo below).

2 Carefully cut out the central area of fusible web and remove it, leaving only about ¹⁄8in (3mm) inside the drawn line. The removed pieces of fusible can be kept for later projects. If the removed area has extra, smaller shapes traced on to it, these can now be cut out in the same way. Don’t try to cut away the inner areas of any small or narrow pieces less than 1in (2.5cm) across as they are just too fiddly.

3 Place each cut piece of fusible web rough side downwards on the wrong side of the fabric, matching the grain line arrow with the grain or weave of the fabric. Press
