|Mini quilt using "Becca" appliqué template|
Yes, I said templates, not patterns. I've designed several appliqué templates that can be used in a variety of ways. These will look great on quilts and wall hangings and are adaptable to use for other projects, such as clothing and purses. I can envision these designs on pillows and tea towels - perfect for gift giving. You can use these templates in any project that you can imagine - no limitations.
Although I do like to create larger projects, sometimes I only have time for a smaller one and this is how I envision that these templates will be used. Need a quick gift for a friend? Choose one of the appliqué templates and create a mini-quilt. Want to make a placemat set for a house warming? Piece together a simple background and take it up a notch by adding an appliqué. You'll find lots of uses for these designs.
