I am going to have a try at machine applique. I have been practicing sewing curves, dip and didos. I think I mught have it down enough to start something.
1. If sewing a white applique to blue background do I use white thread or Blue thread. White will blend the hook part of the stitch on the top of the applique, but may show the smal stitches right next to the applique. In general I would assume that you match the thread to the applique piece, Correct?
2. When putting white on top of colored fabric do you do anything extra to keep the white from showing through?
I would also appreciate any other tips. This will be my frist attempt.
