    It's gorgeous! When you did your straight stitching around your pieces, it looks like you stopped & changed thread colour to match, right?

    * plastic templates and starch
    OK, so the list goes on!

    And now I've tried "free-motion" applique' on the sweetest little pillow topper. At a retreat given by Kellie Wulfsohn from Australia, we used raw edge applique' pieces with fusible adhesive, added a couple of layers of wool batting, grabbed a pair of new garden gloves to get a good grip, dropped the feed dogs, then straight stitched around each piece two to three times. Once the pieces are on, quilt in a few swirls. I gave the freemotion quilting a good try, then I brought it home and used my longarm... I know, I cheated! But I did learn another fun way to applique!

    A unique designer, we're bound to see more of Kellie's "Don't Look Now" designs... patterns... classes... and even a line of fabrics for Riley Blake Designs coming next Spring. I first found her on this Board, with one of her quilts in a picture of "Doll Quilts" in the header. Here's her website: http://dontlooknow.typepad.com/dont_...-fabric-1.html

    What's your favorite method of applique?
    That is really awesome. Kinda curious how much thread is used to create the masterpiece. Lately I have been getting tired of changing bobbins because they run out of thread.

    Love that, but it is one of those things I cannot imagine ever doing myself except maybe on a small wall hanging- on things that are made to be used, doesn't the fabric ravel when you have to wash it?

    Well done, your work is beautiful.

    Very pretty. I'm just learning to applique but I must try this. Can you tell me if you can wash this method of applique in the washer?

    Thanks, Mary

    I don't have a favorite method of appliqué because I don't care to do it. I love the look of it because of the detail, but it's too slow for me. Yours is beautiful and I can appreciate the time and effort that goes into each project, whether hand or machine done. But I tell you this, if I saw a pattern, and I really wanted to do it, I would. I just made a few bibs that were machine appliqued-small and finished fast.

    That just takes my breath away! Absolutely gorgeous!!
    Sounds like a VERY easy way to applique, I may have to try that!
    Right now I am hooked on the "back basting" technique.

    Lovely. I have used most of you methods and mostly use needle turn. I would like to start using blanket stitch and the machine applique.
