    I doubt if those edges would fray - button hole stitches work real good on button holes - this won't have the wear button holed get.

    This is a wonderful tutorial, very helpful. Thanks for sharing.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Wow, I'm impressed with your perfect blanket/buttonhole stitch. Every stitch is exactly the same length and width!!

    Do you have to make your stitched applique smaller than desired finished size because you leave a bit of the edge beyond the machine stitching?

    MUV, I am curious. What does the 1952 stand for in your life? In my life, it was the year I graduated from High School, 60 years ago June 12.

    Thanks Muv. You are so special to so many here on the board.

    Looks very nice. Looking forward to seeing the completed project.
    We were in England this past April and enjoyed seeing the sights of London and Windsor Castle.

    Here is the finished hanging - hope you like it!

    OHSue - the blanket stitch only adds about a sixteenth of an inch all round.

    Fmhall2 - you make me feel like a spring chicken. It's the year the Queen acceded to the throne. I am one of the millions born during her reign. Few people can remember any other monarch. My grandmothers were born in the reign of Queen Victoria, lived through the reigns of Edward VII, George V, Edward VIII and George VI, and died in the reign of Elizabeth II. I don't think I will equal that!
