Holiday Fusible Applique'



Even though it's only May....it's a great time to plan your Christmas quilt projects.  Last year I made a really great quilt top, which I sold at Christmas Jul just days after I made it.  It was a super sweet Flimsy.  This year, I am making another one, and while I have the pattern drawn on the fusible web, I haven't picked out the fabrics yet.  I love the red and white, but I don't have some of these fabrics this year.  I am thinking about going with a blue and silver colorway, but I love the red and white too.  Maybe I should do two.  I will post what I do, so check back.

I used a combination of woven cotton and batik cottons to make this quilt.  Both fabrics work for fusible appliqué.



The pattern comes from this wonderful book by Cheryl Almgren Taylor.
