    Would someone be willing to post up-close pictures of their applique? I'm trying to figure out if what I imagine it looks like is really what it looks like.

    Thanks

    Lady-T, what does raw edge applique mean? Also, is blanket stitch done with your machine?

    I see you're in Iowa...me too!!!

    In raw edge applique the appliqued pieces do not have the edges turned under.

    They are usually applied with fusible web and the sewn around the edges,
    You can do a multi-stitch free-motion zig-zaggy motion over the edges, satin-stitch,

    or a straight stitch 1/8-1/4" inside the raw edge to encourage frayed edges
    (like on my leaves)

    You can do a blanket stitch with your machine bnut on the Christmas piece I did mine by hand.

    Not sure where Sully is...? I'm over by Ft Madison

    Sully is about 50 miles east of Des Moines, just off I-80.

    This hand applique is beautiful! I like handwork therefore I love needle-turn applique. Stitches are hidden in the folded edges of the applique piece about 1/8th inch apart. On the back it will look like tiny little running stitches. Sorry I don't have a picture to post but hope this helps.

    I'm not really sure. Someone mentioned that one of the months in the House BOM will be applique. I'm trying to get prepared. :)

    Here is one of the 12 Nutcrackers I'm working on for my DGD's quilt. I have 9 of them finished and took time off to join the Row Robin and Farmer's Wife Quilt before working on the last 3. I appliqued the Mouse King using a very narrow satin stitch. Hope this helps. Belles

    Red Garnet222: Do you have the pattern for the poinsettia? It's beautiful. I'd like to try it.

    It is Christmas In New England
    by Prarie Grove Peddler number PGP352 . You can google prarie grove peddler on line and get it straight from them.

    Sorry...
