Fused Garden Blooms

To mimic the look of hand appliqué in less time, fuse pieces in place, then machine-stitch around each piece with matching thread and a tiny zigzag. The small prints and stripes featured are from the Wildflower Serenade II collection by Kansas Troubles Quilters for Moda Fabrics.

To use fusible web for appliquéing pieces, complete the following steps.

1. Lay fusible web, paper side up, over patterns. Use a pencil to trace each pattern the number of times indicated in cutting instructions, leaving 1/2" between tracings. Cut out each fusible-web shape roughly 1/4" outside traced lines.

2. Following manufacturer’s instructions, press fusible-web shapes onto wrong sides of designated fabrics; let cool. Cut out fabric shapes on drawn lines. Peel off paper backings.
