Make Appliqué Templates
Your quilted appliqué project is only as good as your template. Begin by tracing the design. Lay template plastic over each element of the design and trace carefully with a fine-point, permanent marker. Make the templates the exact size of the finished pieces with no seam allowances. The seam allowances are added when you cut out the pieces. If you have straight lines, use a ruler for best results.
