Working on an a baby quilt for my first grandchild - yay! The quilt has some light appliques on dark backgrounds. What is the best way to prevent the background from showing through the appliques? I am doing fusible applique, and then satin stitching around them. I was thinking of cutting out the background behind the applique shapes after stitching. Has anyone tried this, and how did you like it? Is there a better way? I would love to hear some tips!
