About Me: Alicia M. Cardoza Sue Pelland Designs Certified Instructor
I have been quilting since the early 80’s. My first quilt was a sampler, hand pieced and hand quilted. The piecing was done using plastic hand made templates. There was no rotary cutting then! My latest project is a bed size feathered star. This has been my most challenging quilt to date.
My first experience with the Sue Pelland Design Templates was while participating in a Round Robin. My round had to accent the quilt and I was pressed for time. Whatever I would do had to be quick and easy. I went to a local quilt shop and found the Sue Pelland Designs Christmas Ribbon – A Leaves Galore pattern. I knew instantly that was what I wanted. I was successful in learning how to use the template. I cut S and Z shapes creating a ribbon border. It was perfect! What impressed me most was not only the ease of use, but how quickly I could cut the pieces and waste little fabric!
My goal is to share how easy and enjoyable Sue Pelland's templates are for fusible applique and beyond!
