Quilt Applique Patterns

Although most of our applique patterns are shown on shirts and vests, applique is also used extensively on quilts. Applique is the quilting technique in which pieces of fabric are sewn on a foundation fabric to create designs. The basic idea of quilt applique is simple - cut a shape out of one fabric and sew it onto another fabric. Applique can result in gorgeous quilt blocks.
