Applique Block Patterns (Page 5)

Okay, I’ll admit it… I’m like everyone else. I love our Wooden Pine Forest, but my heart was captured by the little birdies! So, it only seemed fitting that I “immortalize” them in one of our applique blocks. I took the little bird and made 2 larger variations. On ourRead More →

This is the pattern I used when crafting our Wooden Autumn Forest. It’s always fun using different materials to make the same pattern. I made this Autumn Oak Block Applique in golds, but it could be done in oranges, reds and browns. I designed it to fit our 6″ xRead More →

Our pool came down this weekend… along with many leaves. Early for both. In many ways I have thoroughly enjoyed our summer… temps well below the norm, which suits me fine. But I’m afraid this unseasonably cooler summer has wreaked havoc on our gardens. We have never had a less bountiful garden. I hope ourRead More →

  Although the calendar may still say August… supposedly the hottest month of the year… the temperature says fall… and it’s been this way for the past week. Now, I’m a fall person, so I’m alright with this, but it does make me feel like I better get a moveRead More →

I have added a USAF Roundel Applique Patch to our Free Appliques Database. This one was not designed to fit on our standard 6 inch squares but instead I made it 7 inches wide to fit nicely across my son’s shirt. Of course you can reduce the size if youRead More →

  Here is our Crazy Little Bird Applique Block. You’ll notice a few changes from the one on Pixie’s shirt, but all in all, it’s the same little guy. I made the pattern to fit on our 6″ x 6″ blocks. The one on Pixie’s t-shirt is about 85% theRead More →

  Thanks to Christy’s suggestion over at Sweet Tidings, I turned my outdoor Wall Flower into a cute Posy Applique Block. I know I’m always saying that “this was designed for a 6″ x 6″ block but the pattern can be reduced or enlarged to meet your needs”. This isRead More →

  As I said in my last blog, my mind and body have gone outside!  As the leaves on the trees begin to unfurl, I’m looking forward to the shade they provide. The Dragonfly Garden on the south side of our house is in the sun all day long. ButRead More →

In the realm of “why the heck not?” I’m including a Fried Egg Applique Block, because… you never know when you might need one??? Anyway, since there are eggs all over the place this week, I decided I may as well include one in our FREE Applique Database. If youRead More →

  Last week Tiptoe Mom requested an applique of a beehive, so tah dah, here it is. It is my plan to add at least 1 applique a week to the blog, hopefully building an impressive collection for many different crafters. If there is an applique you would like toRead More →

    Well, it finally happened… I’ve begun to yearn for spring. And, of course, with spring comes flowers! My mind has been meandering through the woods and my gardens. So, after designing the tree stump, I needed to surround it with flowers! While going through various embroidery stitches, IRead More →

  Often when I’m sitting around doodling, I draw cupcakes. (Second only to my old dog, Fred, doodle wise!) I’m not sure if it’s because they are relatively easy to draw, because I’m hungry, or because they are just so darn cute! Anyway, it only makes sense that it wouldRead More →

  Tim’s daughter, Liz, has been busy adding a little pizazz to some of her t-shirts. Smart person that she is, she realized she could buy inexpensive t-shirts, add some appliques, and turn them into totally awesome, one of a kind shirts. She started by using Wee Folk’s Curved HeartRead More →

  This weekend I designed our Slumbering Owl Applique Block. He was a hoot to make! (Sorry, that had to be said!) He is a little more complex than some of our other appliques because of the detail in the feathers. It’s a little lost in the photo, but theRead More →
