|The Hand Maker Collection by Natalie Barnes for Windham Fabrics|
I began with my template cut from freezer paper. I ironed it to the right side of an 8" square of my chosen fabric, with the fusible interfacing underneath (the applique can be cut from a smaller piece of fabric than the background square). Then I cut it out.

Then I cut out a total of 6 Winding Ways applique units
|6 fabrics: 3 dark and 3 light|
I paired and cut out background squares to coordinate with my patches. I then pulled threads for the raw edge applique.
