Tried both. Hands down, strongly prefer needle turn hand appliqué. Easier to control and do, love the look. Very relaxing and can do anywhere. No need to buy stabilizers or tons of different thread colors. I have silk thread already in lots of different colors and use it for binding and needle turn appliqué. I bought nancy chongs video on needle turn appliqué. It is called two color qpplique quilts or something like that. I have watched that video about 10x. It is excellent. I used to avoid appliqué bc I was afraid to try and thought it looked too hard. Now I love it.
