    With all the discussion about the different papers, here and in another thread ..... here's some links to three products available in Canada. I think the parchment paper description makes it a match for Muv's greaseproof paper. It's pretty indestructible stuff so would be good for using in both steps that she mentions.

    For the Canadians ... Your local HH can order it in for you, and have it in the store within a few days. While I haven't ordered these products, there's never been a minimum order requirement and they have gladly ordered just one, if it's not a standard item on their shelves.

    Very nice tutorial. It definitely makes me think of applique in a different way that wouldn't be too intimidating. I wonder how well this method would stand up to regular use, say in a bed or lap quilt? With stitching twice, it seems like it wouldn't go anywhere, but would the raw edge fray through?
    I have a screw driver and YouTube--I can fix it!

    I doubt if those edges would fray - button hole stitches work real good on button holes - this won't have the wear button holed get.

    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Wow, I'm impressed with your perfect blanket/buttonhole stitch. Every stitch is exactly the same length and width!!

    Do you have to make your stitched applique smaller than desired finished size because you leave a bit of the edge beyond the machine stitching?

    MUV, I am curious. What does the 1952 stand for in your life? In my life, it was the year I graduated from High School, 60 years ago June 12.
