    New appliqué method?

    Hi. This is a new method for me just wondering if any of my QB friends have tried this and how it works. You use the fusible interfacing. Will this method work with small pieces. Thanks.

    This method requires turning pieces. The smaller you go, the harder it is. For small pieces I like using paper back fusible and doing raw edge applique. Use a decorative stitch around the edges. Leaves look very pretty using the feather stitch. Stems using blanket stitch.

    Yes, Eleanor Burns of Quilt In A Day does that a lot. I love doing Sun Bonnet Sues like that.

    It's good for bigger pieces. I don't think it would work that well with real small pieces. I have done the Sunbonnet Sue and I loved it.

    sew and turn circles look great--especially if you use the drawing pin method to sew exact circles

    I agree that this would be hard with small pieces.

    I use this method all the time and love it. It's quick, easy and there's no bulk or stiffness. I'm not sure it would be practical for very small pieces though, they could be hard to turn. Other than that, it's a great option.
