    Scribble stitch for applique

    I found this blog with information on a different way to secure applique pieces instead of using the blanket stitch. It looks like fun and I was thinking it may be faster than my machines blanket stitch.

    The video on how to do it is in the middle of the page. click the link below.

    I use this technique a lot -especially on leaves and animals like teddy bears. They looks so much softer than a satin stitch I think.

    Looks interesting I have a wall hanging started that they might be an excellent way to finish an area I need work on. Thanks for posting this.

    That sounds like a very good idea, for any kind of animal, so it gives dimension to their hair or fur. Thanks for that suggestion, quiltmom04!

    I can see where that stitch could be useful. Thanks.
