How To Applique A Quilt: A Simple Tutorial

Applique Quilt

Have you ever considered doing an applique quilt, but you’re not quite sure how to begin?

Or maybe you think you need some “next level skills” to create applique pieces. 

Say no more because, in this post, I will tell you all about applique and how to execute it.

My goal is to give you the tools and confidence to make beautiful applique pieces for your next quilt project.

What is Applique Quilting?

So, what exactly is applique quilting?

Applique will be a piece of fabric cut into the desired shape, whether it is hearts, letters, animals, or other designs that you then apply to your quilt top. The possibilities are, literally, endless when it comes to applique. It’s one of my favorite techniques to use to embellish or personalize a quilt.

Applique is a great option if you want a complex shape on a quilt top. For example, the quilt that I will be making for this tutorial has a deer silhouette applique. 

Trying to create that using patchwork or even paper piecing would have been difficult, and I wouldn’t get those beautiful curves and precise points for the antlers. But with applique, I was able to draw the silhouette by hand and create the perfect shape and size for this large centerpiece. More on that later.
