Layered Applique // Skill Builder BOM

This month for Skill Builder BOM we are making the Scissor and Rotary Cutter Blocks. These blocks are made with a technique called Layered Applique or sometimes called Applique by Number. This technique looks difficult, but it's actually really quite easy. For this technique you use freezer paper templates and Liquid Stitch glue. I have some really fun designs in mind using this technique, which I will probably put together as technique kits in my shop for those of you interested in trying the technique. You could also join the Skill Builder Block of the Month at anytime!   bomlesson rotary-cutter-block-adscissor-block-ad
