This New Year's Day quilt is turning into a real project! I now have all these quarter-circle curves that should have tape on the edges but I'm thinking I might machine applique the edges down. I have never machine appliqued before, and tried one edge to see how it will look. My question is - will the edges fray out from under the stitching? Does this mean the quilt is not washable?
Here's a picture of what it looks like. I don't have a micro setting on my camera, so it's hard to get close-ups, but hopefully you can see the threads coming out from under the stitching. Help, please.
