I'm working on an qpplique project and one of the steps says after you use your preferred adhesive to attach the cutouts, to use freezer paper, coffee filters, sandwich wrap papers, etc on the back side when you machine applique to 'stop the pucker'. I'd never read/heard this before. I summize it is to stabilize the block I'm working on, so one of my questions is does that extra thickness absorb the tension/pull on the fabric that keeps the puckers from happening?
Does anyone have any hands on experience with different products/options/methods for really great results and ease of removing this material after appliqueing?
Thanks in advance!
