    Applique tutorials

    I am at the stage of my quilting career that I would now like to tackle an applique quilt. Because I am kinda fussy, before I even attempt to do this however, I would love to look at a few tutorials on line. As I still work full time I have been unable to find anywhere to do a class out of work hours so figured that this might give me some tips before I start. I thought a child's quilt would be the perfect beginners piece. Would appreciate any feedback you can give me .
    Cheers
    Carol B

    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    What type of applique, needleturn applique or machine applique

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9vKcyymFkyk This shows you the different types so you can then find the right information for the style you want to try.
    I love applique especially needleturn,
    The biggest risk is the one not taken

    Erin Russek's blog is one of my favorites, she does gorgeous applique. She has very good, clear pictures showing how to do each step. This is a link to all of her posts listed in her "applique lessons" category. She also offers free patterns to practice on.

    Silver Needle gave you a great link, I too am a Erin Russek fan. So heres a couple more sites for different applique techniques. http://www.generations-quilt-pattern...-applique.html This one is for invisible machine applique. And this one is for fusible machine applique http://ivoryspring.wordpress.com/201...ible-applique/ If you scroll down on the righthand side you'll find she has several other tutes.

    Thanks, Carol, for asking that question. I so enjoyed seeing Erin Russek's video! I had always glued everything down before I started sewing and wondered if I should just do one thing at a time. Now, I see that it is OK to do that. A tutorial that I watched when I started was Jennifer Bosworth's at www.youtube.com/ShabbyFabricsUniv

    I forgot to add, you need to scroll down to Jennifer's applique videos. There are some quilting videos first. She has 8 applique videos. They are not listed in order; but it is better to start with 1 and go through the series.

    Never regret growing older, its a privilege denied to many.
