Rainbow Popsicle Quilt Along - Week 4


Welcome to Week 4 and how amazing are all the #rainbowpopsicelquilt Tops starting to look.  I hope you are nicely surprised by just how quickly this design sews up.  Now for some fun with adding some Applique Sprinkles to your Popsicle.

Post your pics from the weeks prompts on Instagram to - #rainbowpopsicleqal#rainbowpopsiclequilt and #tiedwitharibbonpatterns.  It also helps to tag me - @tiedwitharibbon to make sure I see your post.

WEEK 4

Adding the Sprinkles to your Popsicle is of course also totally optional.  You might have chosen a busy fabric or just want to leave them off.  Your Sprinkles also become a great way to hide any of your Half Square Triangle points that maybe just didn't come together as well as you hoped so you can cover them with a Sprinkle.

Applique has long been one of my Quilting favourites.  I love each step of the process from tracing to cutting and then sewing.  I prefer to use paper-backed Fusible Web when making my Applique shapes because it allows for easy tracing and cutting.  Not all Fusible Web is the same so you may need to experiment to find a brand that works for you.

There are many machine stitches you can use for sewing down your Applique shapes.  You can use a Blanket Stitch to sew around the outside raw edge of your shape.  Or you may like to create a raw edge Applique, which uses a Triple Stitch sewn just within the shape outline.  I also love to Hand sew the applique so you might like to do it this way as another option.

HOW TO MAKE YOUR APPLIQUE SHAPES

For the Sprinkles you will be following the same method as described below.
