A traditional patchwork block that needs to be applied to the background. This block becomes very portable if you make it by hand.
This is not an in depth applique workshop but a good beginners guide to what you need to consider and the basic tools needed.

For more detailed stitching information you can watch Maggie Davies’s workshop on Hawaiian (but obviously you don’t need to do the cutting out!).
If you want to think about doing the applique by machine you can consider Invisible Machine Applique with Dawn Cameron-Dick.
