Applique Tuesday

For each three flowers I make for Hexie Friday, I need a basket and leaves on the background.  These I applique. Here's one in progress.  I make the templates from freezer paper.  Iron the seam allowance to the shiny side of the template and iron in place.  Fast way to be about appliqueing the parts.
Would love to see your applique or whatever you're working on.  It's so inspiring to see other's work. Linky below.


  1. I love the look of your baskets. How large is each square?

    1. Finishes to 12" . I cut them 13" while I do the applique to them.

  2. It's so cute! Thanks for sharing! ~Melanie

  3. I too use the freezer paper method and like it a lot. I find every stage relaxing in it's own way:) Thanks for the link you, it's fun to see what others are doing.

  4. We quilters do such labour intensive work! But that is what it is about I guess. I'm sure your flowers look beautiful on these blocks.

  5. What a pretty basket. There are so many appliqué techniques out there. When do you remove the freezer paper?

  6. Thanks for linking up with Needlework Tuesday.
    I do enjoy applique, but am having trouble actually seeing the stitching. Time for new glasses but I have been put it off. Your work is lovely, am going to browse some of your previous posts. thanks.

  7. Oh, fun to see what goes with the hexagons. I didn't remember this part.
