    I did my first one with hand applique, but subsequent ones have been machine appliqued. I have even used the interfacing to give it texture/3D affect and invisible thread. Then quilted. It came out fabulous. I will post a picture as soon as I get a new USB cable.

    My girlfriend does that all the time. She hates hand sewing. She machine sewed hers down by just sewing in a circle and she let the tips free. It was really cool . It's your Quilt, enjoy it how ever you want to .

    I have seen them done both ways so it is totally up to you which way you applique them.

    http://quiltinaday.com/theater/misc/misc-dresden.html Follow this link and you will see Eleanor Burns sew Dresden plate blades together with a serger, and then applique with a machine. Great episode.
