    My friend picked her backing based on what each of her children liked, so it didn't match the quilt but had very special meaning.

    Thanks guys! I was wondering what method did you use to attach appliques and designs to your quilts? Do you use a stitch or special foot or iron on? I'm wanting to learn what is most popular and best quality.

    Amanda, what a great memory quilt!
    I usually use heat and bond lite or wonder under. Then I satin stitch around the applique.
    Have fun with it...watch some tutorials on utube and get creative!
