Mini Quilt Appliqué with Wonder Fuse
with instructor Steve Butler
What is it? – Appliqué . As a noun it’s an amazing and beautiful fiber art form. As a verb, appliqué refers to the addition of subordinate decorative fabric motifs to a larger, supporting piece of fabric. It has applications to quilting, fashion, home décor and crafts. Appliqué can be elegant or simple and it can create real world, geometric or abstract schemes. By designed intention it can relate a story or simply project a meaningful image. It’s all up to you. And when you consider your creative medium is a seemingly unending array of available and ever evolving fabric colors, patterns and textures, it’s clear that your creative work is cut out for you. Well, actually you have to cut it out and then do the appliqué part. The creative process is the fun, even inspiring part. Putting it all together exactly as you’ve envisioned it can be more of a challenge. There are three primary methods to attach our fabric designs to our base fabric. Traditional applique turns and sews down the seam allowances of our motifs to that base. Sew and turn applique is a technique that uses a motif made of two identical pieces sewn right sides together and then turned inside out revealing smooth edges that are then attached to our base fabric. And, lastly, we have fusible applique. Perhaps the easiest and most direct method, fusible applique eliminates the need for seam allowances or duplicate shapes. The fusible material allows us to easily and precisely press our motif shapes onto our base fabric. More time creating and less time spent in frustration and tedium. Creative bliss goes to the head of he class and Clover is there to welcome you with Wonder Fuse, its industry unique quality fusible fabric.

Wonder Fuse is very easy to use. Instructions are as follows.
Reverse and trace your applique design creating a mirror image on the release paper side of Wonder Fuse. Cut fusible web slightly larger than the traced piece.
Place fusible web (rough side) on the wrong side of the fabric. Use hot, dry iron and press for 5-8 seconds. *Note: always check your iron temperature with the fusible before you begin your work. Heavier fabric will require more time.
After temperature cools down, cut applique to size, following outlines drawn on the paper backing. Once the paper is cut to size, go ahead and peel off paper backing.
Place applique with the fusible web side down onto your project. Grab your hot. dry iron again to fuse applique to the background fabric. Optional: use a pressing sheet to prevent from damaging the fabric.
Something to keep in mind: Always pretest a swatch of fabric to ensure it is compatible with Wonder Fuse.
