Cut Fabrics


Cut pieces in the following order. Cut light pink stripe border No. 4 strips lengthwise (parallel to selvage).

Designers Cherie Ralston and Alma Allen used a freezer-paper method to prepare pieces for machine appliqué. Instructions that follow
are for this technique. (Patterns are provided for this technique; if you’re using another method, reverse patterns using a light box or sunny window.)

1. Lay freezer paper, shiny side down, over patterns. Trace each pattern the number of times indicated in cutting instructions. Cut out freezer-paper shapes on drawn lines.

2. Using a hot, dry iron, press freezer-paper shapes, shiny sides down, onto the designated fabrics’ wrong sides, leaving 1/2" between shapes; let cool. Cut out each shape, adding a 3/16" seam allowance to all edges. Cut seam allowances slightly narrower at tips of leaves; clip inner curves as necessary.

3. On each appliqué shape, run a glue stick along seam allowance wrong side, then finger-press seam allowance to back of freezer paper; let dry.
