Are you a beginner to applique? Well....Summer is here and so are a couple summertime applique designs from Quilt Doodle Designs. They are quick and easy. They are perfect applique projects for a beginner! A great way to use up some scraps of fabric. Grandma's Bowl is perfect for someone learning machine applique. It has gentle curves for learning. The yo-yo cherries are fun to make and add a special touch to this design. My picnic basket pattern is also fun to make and would be a perfect 'housewarming' gift. (Especially if paired up with a brownie mix)
Both patterns are available as an instant PDF download on Craftsy and Etsy. I hope that you give them a try. These are fun designs to make up and have a couple of hostess gifts on hand. It's always nice to grab a sweet applique towel and wrap it around a bottle of wine for a quick hostess gift. They are also fun to use to dress up a picnic or barbeque table setting.
Let's enjoy summer, beat the heat and quilt inside with the fan and air conditioning!
