    I went to this site today, bunnyhill designs and there is a great BOM of appliques there. All the patterns for this are free as long as you do not resell them. Her designs for sale are a bit high but very very cute. I think I am going to give the BOM (seasons) a try, never having appliqued before this could be a challenge and a half. Any tips? I am good with embroidery (at least I think so).. does everyone fuse the designs on the fabric first or just pin? and is embroidering over fusible harder than regular as its thicker? inquiring mind here would love to know

    I use this method for fusible applique. I am quilting my Bunny Hill BOM as we speak and will post pictures when I am done. I love Anne Sutton's patterns. Check out her Flicker site for some great version of the blocks. Also, search the Board as Bunny Hill has come up before and there are some great pictures of blocks here too. We are using this free BOM for our 2010 Daytime guild.

    I fuse or use Elmers glue around the edges and heat set it with an iron, I don't think it gets as stiff as fusible. :D:D:D

    elmers washes out? can you hand stitch over/around it?? it doesnt change the look of the fabric permanently (ie color etc darkening?).. never thought of it before.. what an idea!

    I have used fusible once, but find it too stiff.

    I starch the fabric heavily, cut out the design inc seam allowance, then press around the template (paper), slide out the template, then use glue stick or pin it or tack the applique piece to the foundation (I don't iron if I use glue). I then applique using thread the closest match to the applied design. It's time consuming, but worth it.

    I wouldln't use a fusible if you are planning hand applique. If machine, that would be fine if you use a light one. Have you thought about learning to hand applique with this pattern? I have the whole year printed off and plan on doing it that way with hand applique.

    I am planning a hand applique as my machine applique is sometimes dead on and sometimes obviously off.. my hand stitches I can do at night on the couch. I think it will whip up fast. I just went through ALL 835 pictures on flicka on this quilt so many change ups.. most were pretty good. I saw what I didnt want it to come out like for me personally so this was a good advance lesson on what appeals to me vs what I would be sad I put all that time into and not love. I will post pics as I make them, hope you do the same!

    Ditto on this method, it works great! The fabric stays nice and soft. This is how I attach my quilt lables now too.

    Here are my finished Bunny Hill BOM projects. I completed the "Four Seasons" door hanging in August because I really wanted to "finish something." Note I changed Anne Suttons July block so it was more balanced in this four block format and the August block because that's when school starts around here. Of course she introduced the perfect school block in September, but it was too late for my Four Seasons hanger. This is our guild's Daytime Auxiliary BOM 2010 project and I am glad to have the samples finished. I am really excited that she is doing another Free BOM the Snowman is adorable.
