Barb m - The centre piece was already appliqued I used what we call bondaweb and machined around it. (I have a few of these - I was going to use them in my big quilt (still in progress) as corner stones, but changed my mind...Originally Posted by Barb M
Most machines have zigzag or satin stitch, or blanket stitch, infact any of these will do. If you fuse them down on a piece of muslin, or as I have done here with fusible stabilizer then all you have to do is overstitch the edges. If you look at the different stitches you can see some would be better than others, I think a closer denser type stitch would be better, as long as there is an overlap of fabric, and depending on what the use of the item is going to be for, it is just like raw edge applique.....does that sound any clearer ??????
