Dear Members

The Applique Guild of Australia Inc. was formed in 2012 with the aim of promoting the art of applique in all its styles and to provide an Australian guild specifically for applique. Membership is open to all who have an interest in applique; traditional or modern, hand or machine, novice or professional.

Our Newsletters and Forum are only available to guild members but please stay and browse the rest of the site to learn more about us.

We welcome new members so that the appreciation of applique will continue to grow.





Growth Chart

As l have had a lot of time on my hands due to the virus, l decided to make a growth chart for my grandson as his parents were saying "l think his grown again". He likes animals and can name each one and makes their noises. He is now 22 months.

I curved the fabric to give it some interest instead of 1 colour or straight lines.

The tape has been hand made by using a brought tape and making the calico at the same position as the tape then appliqued onto the fabric but only after everything else was appliqued and the piece quilted.

Hand quilted using a Sue Spargo multicoloured thread and followed the curve of the fabric.
