I am new to this board and fairly new to quilting. I have pieced a queen size quilt and now I am wanting to do some applique on it. My problem is I cannot decide if I should do a satin stitch by machine or applique by hand - then if by hand which is the easiest method to use. How is that for a pile of questions? This quilt will be washed often so I need the applique to be secure and last through the washings.
Thank you to everyone for any suggestions. I have been looking at this pieced top for 2 weeks trying to decide how to do the applique. Need you all to get my butt in gear!
