Joyous Applique Designs was founded in August 2012 with my goal being to share "Applique the Easy Way" with quilters everywhere. My techniques utilize HeatnBond Lite or HeatnBond Feather Lite coupled with freezer paper templates to create fun small projects that can be machine or hand stitched, or even created with wool or bamboo felt. Your fabric and thread choices can really add to the designs to make your project a one-of-a-kind beauty. Don't forget the embellishments - Hotfix Crystals, buttons, small shells, and beads add a personal touch to your finished project. I would love to see pictures of your completed projects and hear what types of pattern you would like to see in the future.
If you would like to have me visit your shop or quilt guild to provide a program or teach a workshop, please Joy Duke at (757)838-1043.
