In case you are new to the world of large applique designs, let me fill you in. A large applique design is one which needs 2 or more hoopings, with the joining completed as you stitch, in the hoop. The beauty of my large applique designs is you can quickly create a 3D Design much larger than your hoop.
One Design, two very different styles. Our In-the-hoop Double Dresden is made in 5 hooping’s - joined easily in-the-hoop like a Jig-saw to create a stunning large size design.
- 5x7 hoop creates a 10-inch Double Dresden
- 6x6 hoop creates a 12-inch Double Dresden
- 8x8 hoop creates a large 15-inch Double Dresden
For our Christmas Topper, we used 20 different Christmas Fabrics scraps, and omitted the extra Quilting. With the Sunflower Design, we used One Fabric to show off the Quilting.
I can’t wait to see what you all do with this design. By itself, it makes a stunning Placemat, or Table Topper, or could add it to Tote Bags and Cushions. I would like to make a few different sizes, and add them to a pieced Quilt, to create the ‘wow’ factor.
- If you have editing software, I am more than happy for you to add your own designs to the centre, to create unique Placemats for yourself.
I’ve constructed the design, so it can be completely reversible – I use Cutaway Stabiliser as a backing, but you could easily use a pretty fabric, and create two Toppers! (You’ll need to use matching Bobbin Thread if you want the Topper to be reversible)
While we do not have a step-by-step video for this design, if you are new to this technique, please watch how to make our Swirly Placemat - The same method is used to make that placemat
