What’s fun about this is there are a few new techniques you can give a try. There is machine applique – using the button hole stitch and also fusible applique. Some might even choose raw edge applique.
The block that I am making and sharing in August, I’m giving a try again at needle turn (stitching first from behind- how to coming as well!). Should be fun to see how everyone treats their applique and what method they like to use.
There are templates available also- to help you get those perfect shapes for the applique pieces.
I hope you sew along– and can’t wait to see all the blocks and finished quilts at the end of the summer!
