Enjoy fusible applique the fun way by hand or machine, or break out the wool or bamboo felt and skip the fusible!

Hi!  I'm Joy Duke for Joyous Applique Designs where my primary focus is providing fun applique patterns that you will enjoy using to create quilts that will make you smile.  My designs incorporate a fusible technique which makes these fun, portable projects to stitch by hand or machine.  I hope you will enjoy browsing and find just the right pattern for your quilting style.
