It is looking awesome and I hope you are going to post more pictures as you progress!!! :thumbup:
Yes it is assembled or fused together on the parchment paper with the pattern underneath for placement. I use Mettler and match the thread. I can either satin stitch it to the stiffener and then put it onto a background or I can satin stitch directly to the background. Depends on the size and complexity. This one is pretty simple so I'll do it to a background then build the rest of the quilt.

So do you have the large piece and then paper with the smaller piece on top and the paper stays in?

I'm confused! :?:

Please tell me more!
