I am doing a block for someone who is going through kemo. We all agreed to each do a QAYG block. Some background. I am beginner quilter. I have never done satin stitch or FMQ. I have decided to do an applique block. I was thinking of doing a satin stitch on the sandwich and that by doing that it would limit the amount of FMQ that I would need to do. Is this the best way to do this or should I do the satin stitch on the block and then make the sandwich and then do the FMQ.
