This month we are working on our Garden Walk Quilt Along with applique corners! You can choose to do your applique using wool or cotton- either will work.
Also, if you are doing needle turn applique- you’ll want to add extra seam allowance for turning under on the templates.
Cannot wait to see what you choose to use for your quilt!
To help you get started or figure out the whole applique thing, here are some great resources to check out or review prior to starting.

ABOUT THE QUILT:
Layout option #1: Center only. You’ll be ending this quilt top with a finished size of 25” X 25”
June will be the last step for just this option.
Layout option #2: Full quilt top. You’ll be ending this quilt top with a finished size of 56” X 56”
This option will go from July to October.
Materials list has all supplies needed for both layouts.
Applique: choose either wool or cotton fabric applique. Applique templates don’t have seam allowance added.
When using cotton for applique you can use heat-n-bond lite to secure your fabric.
If you are using needle turn applique, cut your fabric 1/4” larger than the templates.
