For free hand applique' pattern tips see link below. I recently added a second page with some details for actually doing the stitch. You will also find many unique award winning applique' patterns for quilts and wall hangings, suitable for hand and machine applique within the pages of this site.
Artfully Applique' offers applique' quilt patterns suitable for hand or machine applique'. All of the pattern samples shown are done with traditional needle turn. Some of the kit samples are done with a fusible product, and only because I prefer not to spend all my time making lots of samples of the same design just because the fabric becomes unavailable! All of the patterns are my original designs.
It is my desire that you find as much joy in completing applique' quilts as I found in creating applique' patterns for you. I know how precious the gift of time is and how much satisfaction comes from using that time to create beautiful applique' quilts. I strive to give you applique' quilting designs, which are worthy of your craftmanship. Quality is very important to me and your satisfaction is my top priority. If you ever find any reason to be dissatisfied with any of my products, have suggestions or need advice about completing your applique' quilting project, please write to me.

blogging quilters out there? (sounds a little obscene ^_^) Love to hear from
Just click here. This will take you to a post that shows you how I do skinny stems!
Make it a gift!!
Would you like to give a special friend something from here? Just let me know and I will giftwrap it for you. Tell me where to ship it - back to you or directly to them.
Just use the comment option to let me know.
Shipping cost - starts at $1.00 and is consistent with NEW (P.O. webpage says as of 7/5/11) normal post office rates. At 12 oz - I will use the priority flat rate, which is currently $4.80.
I have managed to figure out how to include a "quantity discount", just wasn't able to do it as a percentage of total. If you order 3 or more patterns, you will receive a discount - the minimum discount being $2.00 and the max is $25.00.
A New Series
It is called "In a Word" and, thus, each design will have a one-word name. OK, these are the latest in that series and, as you can see, they have taken a new 'direction'. There are some words about that on the patterns page, which you can get to by clicking on the link below the pictures. The Lizard is the latest. There is a kit for that one, not the other two (yet?). The sample is not finished - is easier to show folks the process with it this way.

All The News That's Fit To Print
Breaking News! High Sierra Quilters has moved to Placerville!!! yea!! They are in the same little strip mall as $$ Store and Grocery Outlet - that's on the East side of town, (heading East) get off Hwy 50 at Schnell School Rd., turn right at end of ramp and left at the 4-way stop just a few feet away. It's about in the middle, between Grocery Outlet and $ Store (at 1444 Broadway). They are so close, we can do a class even if it's only you. Just give them (530-677-9990) or me, a call.
Also - something new: I just added this webpage to something I just discovered(thanks to a jewelery making friend). It's called QFLEA and it's an online 'flea market' - except it's for small businesses with webpages - and who sell QUALITY items. You will find the link at the bottom of this page - check it out. And check out NanciesFancies in the jewelry section.
Nothing new here, other than what's already shown below. Nothing new has gotten a hold of me enough to get pencil to paper - but, now that's it's Spring - who knows!
I did finish the second 4-block collection of mini's. While I have them sewn together to create a small wallhanging, the package does not include directions for doing that. It does include some suggestions for how you might use the 4 mini floral patterns. You can check them out in the picture below and use the link to get to page to order. ^_^
There's also a new one in the Simply Flowers series. It lives up to its name - it is simple and relatively easy. I think it is sweet and it's one of my favorite flowers. There is a kit available. The link will take you to the pattern - the kit can be found on the Simply Flowers Kits page, found in the drop down menu to the right of the pattern page - where it says "browse".
Verily Violet Pattern
Here's the picture for that new little wallhanging with the 4 mini flowers.
