I am making the "Cats Stairway to Heaven" quilt. The top is done with the exception of appliquing the cats and moon. I have never done machine applique, so need some pointers from you who do. Do I need a stabelizer? and what kind? I have some light weigh fusiable web. Should I use that on the back of the whole cat, or just around the edges? I feel so dumb! I have been quilting for years, and have done a fair amount of hand applique, but I'm in a time crunch, so thought I'd give the machine a try. Probably a bad idea with out expermenting on scraps first. Any way, would appreciate any tips you all would like to throw at me. Thank you!
