DIY Applique Skyline

Think outside the ordinary quilt or pillow application.  Try incorporating a scrappy appliqué technique using cork fabric as your creative canvas background for a beautifully stunning piece of wall art. Shannon Brinkley’s quick and fun Scrappy Appliqué techniques makes this project doable for beginners. We’re a little partial to our sweet home Chicago, but this pattern contains a large fold out template with 6 different skylines; New York City, Seattle, Austin, Chicago, St. Louis, San Francisco. Pick your favorite skylines.
