Free Applique Vegetable Quilt

The Vegetable Patch Mini Quilt is the perfect introduction to machine applique. Applique involves creating shapes with fabric and securing them to a background. The process has endless possibilities and is a great technique to learn for beginners.

The vegetable patch quilt makes the perfect gift for your favorite gardener. We also love the theme for a gender neutral nursery or kitchen.

Applique is a technique widely used in sewing. You can create a design using a raw edge technique or a clean finish also called a turned edge applique. Each option is fairly easy to make and your selection will just depend on your project outlook.

It is worth mentioning that if the project you are working on will be sent through the wash many times a clean-finished applique will hold up longer.

If you are not sure how to make a clean edge or turned edge applique, here is a great how-to video.
