If you missed the tutorial last week, I shared how to design a quilt around a panel. My quilt used a new collection of fabrics from Robert Kaufman called Picture This. You can still watch the video here.
In this weeks free video tutorial I will be sharing with you how to jazz up your project with applique. You will learn how to create motifs from blocks in the EQ library and add them to your quilt, a quick resize method, and how to rotate and position the motifs on your quilt.
Here is the quilt from the video.
If you would like additional practice with this technique, add the same applique images to the alternate quilt from last week.
I would love to see what you create from this tutorial.
