About Appliquéd Quilts Appliquéd quilts are fun to make. You can be as creative as you can. Appliqué is stitching one piece of fabric on top of another. Appliqué work can be done by hand sewing, fusing, or machine sewing. You can make any thing from a little square with an apple on it for your teacher, to a giant quilt of a beach scene to hang on your wall at your beach home. One quilt might take you four hours to make, yet the beach one might take four months to make, either way, they are both quilts made with love and care, and have meaning or memories.
Best Fabric to Use - The best type of fabric to use for appliquéd quilts are: Light weight to Medium weight cottons of calico prints, solids, and plaids.  Flannels also work nice. Stay away from any fabric that stretches, these fabrics will not work well with appliquéd quilts.
Easy type of Pattern - An easy type of pattern would be appliquéing simple shapes to a piece of fabric. There is a link below for a free pattern of an easy  small appliquéd quilt with full color photographed directions.
Difficult type of Pattern A more difficult pattern would be like the one in the photo above.  This pattern required  many pieces to be appliquéd on, much of them were small and more difficult to sew on.
Cost & Fabric Usage - Cost and Fabric usage depends on how large your finished quilt will be.  You can make quilts as small as one that will go on the back of high back chair. If you have enough "scraps" and small pieces of fabric laying around the house with some batting, then it will only cost you your time.  Other quilts that are larger, and more detailed could end up being quite costly. But once your project is done, the awesome outcome is well worth it.
Comments - With this type of quilt, one can be soooooo creative!!!! Try drawing your quilt on paper first, or doing a computer image, then cut out your fabric, zigzag around the edges, and finish up your awesome quilt.
