I joined a BOM for a Dear Jane quilt and I'm going to do the small blocks. I've never done much applique and like the fusible methold (because it's easy and I can do it LOL) but I'm not sure how well that would hold up to washing. I'm thinking about instead of making a quilt with the blocks that I will make wall hangings and maybe valance curtains for my dining room and kitchen out of the blocks. So ladies, here are my questions:
1. What's your opinion on the curtain idea? Would it look stupid? I'm the first to admit that I have ideas that really, really don't work in real life so no offense will be taken if you think it wouldn't work.
2. If I did the curtains, what would be the best way to applique? I don't know that the fusible methold would hold up to repeated washings even if it used a buttonhole stitch along the edge after I fuse it down.
All thoughts and opinions welcomed!
