2016 Sewing Month Celebration: Giveaway #4

Welcome back to our celebration of Sewing Month 2016!
 
We hope you've been having fun with our weekly inspiration and giveaways. There are so many video gems in our FQS vault (also known as our YouTube Channel) that we're sharing some more inspirational how-to's based on a theme. This week?  Applique! We've also got a fantastic giveaway, and two people will each win a prize package valued at over $80, which includes the thread-y goodness show below - yum!
AWESOME APPLIQUE!
We know, we know - some quilters consider applique the "A word". Here at Fat Quarter Shop we think applique gets a bad rap, so we've gathered some FQS videos that will help you develop new applique skills or further develop those you may already have.  Take a peek!


See, that wasn't so bad! Applique - by machine or by hand - can be painless and fun, and results in gorgeous quilts and other stitch-y projects!

Each Prize Pack (shown in the tray above) is valued at over $80!

I do some applique in my quilting

Carly Bell said...

I've admired applique, especially having lived in Hawaii and getting to see the lovely local applique technique, but I still haven't tried it myself yet. Plus, my Juki is a straight-stitch only kind of gal, so maybe if I get the HZL for Chrismabirthaversary, I will give it a whirl!

Vicki said...

I love appliqué and have completed several projects including quilts. I especially like using applique in baby and children's clothing. In fact, at my daughter's baby shower guests completed appliqué onesies and hung them on a clothesline after completing them. The guests loved it and what fun onesies to dress baby in later. I can't wait to try Aurifil appliqué thread!

Anonymous said...

I am one on those quilters who has not tried applique yet. Hopefully the videos will take away the fear. I love paper piecing but also really like how applique looks. So will definitely have to give it a try.

Dana said...

Haven't done any appliqué yet...watching all of the tutorials! Can't wait to give it a try!

Elaine Wilson said...

I use applique in my quilting. So far it has just been to put the name of the expected baby on the quilt backing, just to personalise it a little. Usually it is well received!

Mickie Gurney said...

When I was first teaching myself to quilt I made an appliqued wallhanging, using machine applique. It is far from perfect, but I'm pretty proud of it nonetheless! 😊 Now, with all your lovely tutorials my work has a much more polished look.

Debby said...

I have attempted appliqué but after watching your videos I know my next attempt will be successful!

Angela BUSTAMANTE said...

I was always scare to do it however I am now doing Bloom Quilt from Lori and I am loving it.

Hannah Monster said...

I like the look of appliqué but I can't do it too well - I've tried needle turn (admittedly once lol) but no luck. I can do machine appliqué and I can do raw edge appliqué with a nice blanket stitch but turning under eludes me!

I've just started to really do applique with my quilts, but I'm absolutely loving it.

PegP said...

I use raw edge machine applique. I've tried turned edge, but not so great at that yet.

Pam Clark said...

I have just recently started doing applique and I love it!!! I had trouble figuring out how to make it look right at the first but I think I now have the hang of it after using Joanna's technique from Fig Tree. The starch is awesome!!!! I also love the look of the blanket stitch when machine Appliquéd is my choice. You inspire me and I'm sure all of us to try new things and get out of our comfort zone, Kimberly, and I thank you for that!!!! Thanks for this awesome giveaway!! I would be honored!!!

Louise King said...

I have used applique in the past and will be using it on the quilt I am currently making. I made the Happiness Quilt by Monica Poole, and that now lives on my bed.

Robin Withrow said...

I love hand appliqué. It's nice to have hand work to do while "watching" tv or anytime you have to wait around for an appointment. I find machine appliqué more daunting and less forgiving and whenever possible, I substitute hand appliqué.

Katrom said...

I love doing applique. I have done 4 quilts this year with applique. Some machine and some by hand.

Love the look of hand applique! I'm working on the Cozy Christmas sew along.

Thank you for the chance to play. Candice Harris, So Cal.

Lisa said...

I am taking on my first English Paper Pieced quilt with some applique in it. I was shocked to realize how much I enjoyed the slower process when quilting, as I'm not really known for my patience! I've gotten to where I applique any time I can, so to jump to EPP next just seemed logical!

Emily Nicole said...

I have yet to try appliqué, but I'm in a block of the month club and we have some appliqué blocks coming up!! I'm excited and apprehensive about it, but these videos will sure help!

Deb said...

I did some applique six months ago at a class given by a friend, with MUCH hesitation. Now, I just can't get enough of it!!!

I do a lot of fusible applique, only handstitched though, haven't managed to be able to use my sewing machine for that.

Nope, I haven't tried it yet, but after watching your YouTube channel with Lori Holt the other day about it, (with the Sew in interfacing), I have been really eager to try.

Yes, I enjoy using applique in my quilts, but generally complete the pieces with my machine. I'm anxious to become a better hand appliquer, if that's a word. Thank you for the visual instructions.

I have three applique projects in the works, One using traditional needleturn, one Broderie Perse, and the other using fusible. I'm trying out different techniques and trying to find my niche.
