Have you heard about QUILT FUSION? This free quilt software was used to design the One World quilt and can be used to create your own fusible applique patterns. Please check out their website.
|If you need a little help getting started on your quilt, check out some of their helpful videos on YouTube. You can also join the One World Quilt Along for free and get access to all of their videos as they are released! Need more? They have also started doing “live applique” on Facebook. This is a spontaneous live feed that you can watch as you work on their next pattern, a gorgeous carousel quilt!
You can get a free fused applique design each Friday if you sign up on their website….scroll all the way to the bottom of their home page. They also have many fuses applique patterns which you can purchase.
