Count down to the Secret Garden Quilt pattern and tutorial, here is another group of applique patterns: the “Songbird, Tree and Sun“. From “Flowers“, “Ladybug, Butterfly & Snail“, this, and one more applique to go before we move into the final assembly of the quilt. Can’t wait to share it as soon as possible.

Have I told you before that due to the considerable bountiful design of the Secret Garden Quilt, I need to split the tutorial into a few parts? Doing so also gives me more time to prepare the proper pattern in downloadable and printable pdf form. Besides the huge quilt, I’d design and quilt, this is also my biggest challenge in pattern and tutorial sharing. Hope it gets more “LIKES” and “LOVES” from you all!!!

Ciao, need to prepare the next tutorial for the quilt [font for the Secret Garden word] and prepare my new house for moving in 🙂 More updates coming your way!

More Details On How To Sew Songbird, Tree and Sun Appliques

  1. Refer to this method for a fast and easy way to make a huge amount of fabric applique.
    Or, use your favorite method to cut out iron-on fusible applique pieces.

    You may also use the above applique patterns with other applique methods, for example, needle turn applique.

    Peel off the backing paper from the cut-out applique pieces, stick them on the base fabric following the pattern.tree applique


  2. Permanently fuse the applique on the base fabric with medium heat iron.tree applique


  3. Stick the bird and it’s beak above the tree branch, with beak under the body.songbird applique


  4. Follow by its tail.songbird applique


  5. Then it’s wing and eye.songbird applique


  6. Permanently fuse the applique on the base fabric with medium heat iron.fusible applique bird


  7. Repeat the same to the music note applique pieces.
    Sew around raw edges with your preferred stitch design.
    Also, sew the feet of the songbird. I drew the feet with an erasable fabric marker, then run a few rounds of straight stitch on the lines to “embroider” it.
    The photo shows the appliques of the songbird and tree branch after completion with the trapunto quilting method.songbird applique


  8. Peel off the backing paper from the cut-out applique pieces of the sun, stick the center of the sun on the base fabric.
    Arrange the sunray pieces around the sun. The designed dimension of the sun is 11″ x 11″, so limit them within this measurement.sun applique


  9. A complete sun applique arrangement.sun applique
  10. Permanently fuse the applique on the base fabric with medium heat iron.sun applique


  11. Sew around raw edges with your preferred stitch design.
    I quilted the sun with trapunto method.
    If you look carefully, you will also notice that I circular quilt around the sun rays with a straight stitch.sun applique
