Do you do the machine appliqué first? Do you also use a light weight batting? If so, thread painting after machine appliqué and then add the batting and quilt? Thanks so much. I am so confused.

Some times for all your questions. My fabric/cartoon applique is almost always fused. If its small then it will be done on the full piece ie fabric+batting+stabilizer/stiffener. If its large I either do it directly onto the background only with no batting only stabilizer OR I do it off the piece and cut it out and apply it to the backing with either invisible thread of a complimentary thread colour. There is no fixed formula. A large piece wastes the batting if you do it on the quilt sandwich, and I use left over pieces of cotton batting from my quilts constructions.

Just beautiful work!! I was mostly surprised reading the stem is applied first as a reference point as I would've used the stem last as a final focal point so I'll have to try your version as it's exceptional! Fabulous tut! TFS!
