Applique is the technique of applying a cutout fabric design to a background fabric. Over the years many applique techniques have developed. The pieces can be appliques by hand, by sewing machine or by embroidery machine. Applique is commonly used in quilting but also can be used in decorating to embellish household items such as pillows, pot holders, tableclothes, towels, clothes and more. There are no limits to the imaginative projects you can create by appliqueing.
