  1. Thank you for this video. I know nothing about quilting but want to learn. Applique quilting is where I want to start. Is that putting the cart before the horse?

  2. brilliant! Thank you so much! Easy, explanatory, and I love how you talk us through!

  3. I frickin' love how dry you are on the voice over. Also love the finished projects. 🙂

  4. Love the way you move quickly through the tutorial and how you point out a common mistake you can make with an applique. This saved me money because I did not have to purchase a tutorial.

  5. Thanks for such a clear, concise, and humorous tutorial. 🙂  I'm hoping to make my 10-year-old a custom Junior Girl Scout tshirt since the majority of custom or branded shirts are $20+.   Seems a little silly to pay $20 for a kid who is about to grow a zillion inches.
