This is such a great product that I can’t believe I missed it – or all of the different ways I can incorporate it into my projects! Helen Stubbings of Hugs ‘n Kisses has thought of everything!
Helen Stubbins says: Applique paper is a revolutionary product to use for perfect turned edge Applique. It is semi water soluble, semi transparent, has a light fusible on one side and can be used in many techniques. Use for: Glue stick applique, needle turn applique, English paper piecing, foundation paper piecing and as a temporary stabilizer.
How great is this for labeling your quilts? I cut out a heart and ironed it to the wrong side of a fabric. I used a glue stick to turn the outside edges. Then I used a pigma pen to do the labeling and stitched it to the back of the quilt! Done!
It is pliant right out of the package but maintains its shape when the glue is applied. Helen of Hugs and Kisses is also known for her English paper-piecing so she also offers several sizes of hexagons, etc. so you don’t have to cut them – or remove the templates later!
These pre-cut shapes are available in hexagons, circles, clamshells, diamonds, and every other shape you can imagine! Visit our website to see all of the available shapes and sizes
I love Anni Downs and her quirky style. The combination of embroidery, applique, and simple piecing tick al of the boxes. Isn’t it nice to have some handwork when it gets dark at 5:30?
Where Wildflowers Grow is a fat quarter friendly quilt. You need an assortment of 19 fat quarters, a background fabric and binding.

Everyone loves a small project to get that instant feeling of completion. This little pouch is great for a weekend getaway, with a little needle-turn applique, a little stitchery and a little paper-piecing. The front of the pouch has a fun little flowerpot filled with daisies and the word ‘Simplify’ You could always change the word to house someone’s name or something more apt. The back is hand-pieced using simple hexagons. It is completed using a zipper which has been put in totally by hand.
Anna needed a new tote, which is often the reason why new projects come into being. This bag is the perfect size, at 12″x16″, big enough to fit papers and patterns, water bottle and everything else I need for my day, without it being too large and cumbersome to carry. This bag has a needle-turn applique image on the front which is finished with a ric rac border. The back of the bag boasts a pocket, and the gussets and base have an interesting pieced finish with ties to gather the gussets a little, and finish it off perfectly.
