There are three main methods of appliqué: machine appliqué, hand appliqué and fused appliqué.

Do you quilt over appliqué?
Yep, it’s true – you can also quilt right over the applique! A regular, all-over quilting texture can fade into the background visually, even though it goes over the applique. Not only is this easier to implement on your home machine, it’s also much cheaper than custom quilting if you go with longarm quilting.
Do you appliqué before quilting?
If you are doing a small, simple project, you may want to consider quilting it first then adding the appliqué. One consideration of quilting first and appliquéing later is that you will have to put the quilted project into your sewing machine to finish the edges of the appliqué pieces.
What is a appliqué technique?
appliqué, sewing technique in which fabric patches are layered on a foundation fabric, then stitched in place by hand or machine with the raw edges turned under or covered with decorative stitching.
