Applique (encaje de aplicación) is a technique for making pictures out of cloth. I have admired my neighbor’s many wall hangings done in applique and expressed an interest in learning the skill. She has taken me under her wing and is now guiding me in the fine art of applique. We decided to get me going on a 4-block wall hanging with a relatively simple floral pattern. The overall piece will finish out to about 3’ by 3’ or just under a square meter.
