I was excited when catalogues started carrying the die cut motifs until I called them and discovered they did not have fusing on the backs.
    I am ashamed to say that I have cut out some of my appliques but have yet to use any of them on a quilt. Tommorow is another day.
    We probably all knew what a die was but it's just the way we read it. I knew but don't use them so my mind didn't go there. It made me laugh and others, too, and that's always a good thing! :-)

    It's funny how things can be read completely differently then intended. And if you aren't thinking the same way the original poster thinks a laugh can be had by all.

    Holly Hobbie was no Sunbonnet Sue. Sunbonnet was around light years before Holly made an appearance. Holly, however died an early death, comparatively speaking. On the other hand, SS took her vitamins like a good girl and did her exercises and cut down on sugar and fat and she is still with us. PS, I am pretty sure that Holly smoked too. SS never took up the habit.

I wasn't fond of her when she was called Hollie Hobbie in the 70s, and I dislike her still! I admire the workmanship of quilts featuring her and her faceless friend Sam, but that's as close as I get to liking her.

    Wasn't Holly Hobbie a pre-printed line of fabrics? I don't remember seeing applique patterns for her...I remember finding Holly Hobbie fabrics in the sale bins when I very first started thinking about quilting.

    I have done Sue and Sam. Use the straight of the grain. Off grain stretches too muh. I also used a light weight fuse and machine applique.

    That reminds me of the Sun sets on Sunbonnet Sue quilt.
    Have you seen it? I think it was made by someone who doesn't like Sunbonnet sue. It's quite creative.

    Love it. I've always hated the sunbonnets as way too cutesie.

    OK....now that I've stopped laughing so hard at the comments.... I have the Sue die and it's pretty small peices so i recommend that you do the fusible...put fabric on them/iron on before cutting...then u can applique by hand or machine much easier in my experience. Wish i have the Sam die too.
    Yooper 32....u are too much! LOL
