Sewing an Applique on the Destiny II

Home applique design

I’ve made many applique quilts in the past, but I’ve never used an embroidery machine to do so. Let me tell you, I’m in love with the Baby Lock Destiny II for machine applique and embroidery projects! Applique in particular is so versatile, especially when you realize that you can create your own designs quickly and easily on the Destiny.

Later this week, I’ll show you how to design your own applique pattern right on the Baby Lock Destiny II, using the amazing IQ Designer. But, perhaps you’ve never sewn an applique before and need a little primer. I’ve prepped a short video to show you the basic steps needed to sew a machine applique design on your embroidery machine! I hope this gets you excited to try and create some of your own applique patterns in our next lesson!

On Friday, I’ll be back with full instructions for the Home Sweet Home mini quilt. If you’re already familiar with the IQ designer and want to get a head start on making your applique, here is a free PDF pattern to print and use for this week’s projects!¬†Print out pages 1 and 2 for the mini quilt and page 3 for the hope throw pillow project.

    Love your video, but your hair was in front of the sewing machine screen, so it was hard to see just what you where clicking on?

      I agree Iann! This was my first time doing a video demonstration with my tripod, so I am still getting things just right. If you watch the entirety of the video, I repeat the steps for scanning things in a second time with the word “home” and zoom in closer to the screen. Hope that helps, but let me know if you have any more questions!
