Applique Block Patterns (Page 3)

Yesterday we shared this month’s Out of the Block project… a wooden kite made using today’s Kite Applique Block. What is it about kites that excites us so? Is it the fact that a little paper, wood and string, can be transformed into a soaring vision? Or is it, that for justRead More →

I remember as a little girl getting nearly giddy when the spring winds began to blow. On the wind there were scents of thawing dirt, decaying vegetation and worms! But, there was also the smell of LIFE. All around there were signs of spring… trees budding, bulbs tentatively pushing upRead More →

February is a great time to share sweet treats with all the "sweeties" in our life. And what's sweeter than an ice cream cone with sprinkles on top? Our Ice Cream Cone Applique looks yummy enough to eat!  We added sprinkles using a straight stitch and 6 strands of floss, but you could easily add glass beads for extra glitter. Or, cover in French knots. This appliqueRead More →

On a cold winter afternoon, there is nothing like snuggling into your favorite reading corner with a cup of hot tea and a snowflake inspired lap quilt. Enjoy a good book or surfing your favorite blogs while staying toasty warm. For a fun twist on a classic appliqued quilt weRead More →

  FINALLY was able to wake up to snow. Granted… it’s only 1″, and granted… it’s suppose to rain in a couple of days and it will probably be all gone, but this morning I feel like I’m 5 years old and I want to get on snow clothes and go outside and play! I have been waiting toRead More →

  Several weeks ago a reader asked me for a applique block for a cardinal. I finally got it done 🙂 Although we have cardinals in our backyard year round, they look their loveliest in the winter world. Here, we have a male cardinal perched in a tree. I’m sureRead More →

A couple of weeks ago I got a request for a squirrel applique. I realized it has been a while since I added any new applique blocks. Yikes! I really can’t believe I haven’t included a squirrel sooner. Our backyard is teaming with wildlife… totally encouraged by us. We provideRead More →

So… here’s the low down on the panda… Michelle, you know Michelle, my lovely, talented daughter and partner in crime here at Wee Folk Art? Well, she comes to me a week ago and said: “I have a request. Can you make a panda applique? I need to make t-shirtsRead More →

With the high temps we’ve been having this summer, many of my poor flowers are showing the strain. But here, appliqued on black felt, a garden of rainbow flowers are bright and perky! Made entirely with one small petal, these flowers look awesome together but one by itself would lookRead More →

I was working on project (which I will share later in the week) and I needed a moon and stars applique. I was rather surprised I had never designed one for Wee Folk Art, but since I needed to design one now, I made one up as an applique block. Designed to fitRead More →

With the 4th of July just days away, here in the USA, many streets and buildings proudly display our flag and many flag based decorations. Today we are sharing our version of the flag… an applique with lots of "heart" for our nation 🙂 My plan was to turn this intoRead More →

Several weeks ago one of our readers asked if we take requests for applique blocks. Basically I think I told her, "Absolutely, if it's something I want to make 🙂 " In other words, ask me to design a computer keyboard… probably won't get to that. But ask me toRead More →

Although most of the country seems to be cloudy and moist right now, there is a chance that we will be experiencing sunny days soon. I thought we could all use a little sunshine about now, so here is our latest applique block. As always, it was designed to fitRead More →

There have been many interesting ideas of how to use the design in the Little Birdies Eye Case for other projects. But then I thought, I might be thinking too small! It occurred to me that these little guys could, and should, be included in our Applique Blocks. So, IRead More →

When I hear “retro”, I think 1968. I was in 8th grade, and just becoming aware of things beyond my ken. A war was raging, the youth were protesting, girls were wearing mini skirts, boys were letting their hair grow long, and phrases like “Make Love Not War” and “Flower Power”Read More →
