This has been the longest amount of time between posts, since I began my blog in 2009. We have been busy though this past year, thankfully. I hope this finds you all doing well and still making, sewing, quilting, etc.
We are taking a giant hop from our last Christmas project post straight to a quick fun Easter one. Painters Palette fabric and Watercolor Swirl from Riley Blake Designs are the perfect basics for SEW many projects. Like this one!!

It is an easy raw edge fusible appliqué place card for your Easter table or if you hurry, a post card. Best of all the template is a FREE download so use as you want. As always, you’re the maker.
All you need to make these is your favorite fusible web product (we like Pellon 805 featherweight), backing fabric, batting, background fabric, chocolate bunny appliqué and egg appliqué as shown. And our free downloadable template, link below.
Using the template trace your bunny(s) and egg(s) separately on to the paper backing of your fusible product. Rough cut and fuse to your chosen fabrics according to manufacturers instructions. Then cut them out and set aside.
Cut your background and backing fabrics 4.25″ x 6″ and batting squares at 5″ x 7″. We chose to secure patches, also using the fusible product in between each layer
You will sandwich these layers, centering the square patches, batting is designed to hang over the edges with a fusible product in this order. We chose to cut our background fabric with a pinked edge, optional. Fuse patch units. With the template as a guide for placement you are ready to attach the chocolate bunny and then egg applique.
Now, you are ready to sew!!!
Use your favorite decorative or free motion technique to stitch down your appliqué and top stitch/frame around your patches. You may also personalize by stitching or stamping as we did.
