Did you know the word “appliqué” comes from the French “appliquér” which means to apply or to fit over? Jill Finley at WeAllSew.com shows you how to do just that in this tutorial about Machine Appliqué.

Kathy: e9hxeI've been working on a challenge quilt, and have used Sulky, YLI, and Superior invisible threads. Superior Mono-Poly has been the the best invisible thread to use; for me at least. I use a 70/10 needle, and the same Mono-Poly in the bobbin too. Good luck with your project.

I really enjoyed this tutorial on machine applique. I tried it a few times in the past, but I just wasn't thrilled with the invisible thread I used.

I went to Jill's site, but I didn't see a listing for the type of invisible thread she uses now. I have 2 of her books, but I'm just curios, some technology is always evolving, what thread appears to work best.

Thanks for the tutorial!
