What is QuiltPox?

Have you been seeing this phrase about? Wonder why my site is called what it is? Then check out the definition of QuiltPox.

Soft Centered Applique

I love the convenience of fusible applique. However, I hate the stiffness that it adds to the project. So, one day, while working on a baby quilt, I had this idea. All I really needed was the fusible on the outer edges of the applique piece to prevent the fabric from fraying and hold the piece in place until it is machine appliqued down. So, I precut out my applique adhesive, then cut out the center. I have since seen this process mentioned on other sites/television. So, I wrote a little Soft Centered Applique tutorial for you all.
