General Instructions R ead all instructions com pletely before b e g in n in g you r p ro je c t an d before begin n in g each step. Purchase 100% cotton fabric. Prewas}i and iron all i'abrics. All seams are an exact 1/4'. The m easurem ents ah^en already include the seam allowance. Press each seam as you go.

F u sible A p p liq u e v Fusible applicjue is shown although you may use other applique methods if desired. ^.1., Q.1__^he applique designs in the book are re^'ersed so tJiev uill face the correct direction when ironed onto vour prolect. The applique shapes are overlapped as they arc positioned in each project. Special hints are given on the applique pages to help trace and position the applique pieces.

iron follownng m anufacturers instructions. Finish edges with a nmchine blanket stitch or a hand running siitch if desired. Hint: 1 like to use the Applique Pressing S h e e t 'b y Bear Thread Designs. You can easily position the applique pieces and luse them together before you iuse them to your project. {Available from Bear Thread Designs, product #206. 281-462-0661.)

T r a n s fe r r in g verses an d e m b r o id e r y lin es ¥ T ran sfer em broidery lines on applique pieces following the instructions for Fusible Applique. To transfer the embroidered words or lines to a background piece, you can lay the background over the v^erse or em broideiy lines and trace with a light fine pencil line (use a mechanical pencil) or a disappearing ink marking pen. Use a light colored marking pencil for dark fabrics. Holding the fabric up to a window, or using a light table, will help you to trace the lines if the fabric is too opaque. You can also transier the lines with w'ashable nonperm anent ti'ansfer paper

Trace all picces o f the design to the paper side of the itisible web. Hint: W hen you have many smali sim ilar pieces to applique, the pieces are numbered. Write the nitmber on each piece and don't peel the paper backing until you're ready to applique. Trace {.he embroiden- lines to all applique pieces.

E m b r o id e r y Stitchcs v

Cut out the pieces leaving approxim ately 1/4” around the shapes. (vSee figure 1) Hint: I cut the center out o f the fusible web on the larger pieces lea\ing 1/4" around the inside o f the shape. This leaves the applique soft and easy to quilt and embroider.

Iron the fusible web pieces, paper side up. onto the wrong side o f selected fabrics fol­ lowing manufacturers direc­ tions. Let cool. Cut pieces out directly on the tracing lines. (See figure 2) Transfer the embroideiy lines to die front oi the fabric with a light, fine pencil line or marking pen. Fuse the design together.
