Just posted my completed January block of the month. I may be trailing behind but I will get there! Hand applique is a new technique for me and I have alot of time to put in yet for it to look like I know what I am doing. But a few quilts from now I will be able to say.... look how far I have come.
Here's a link to my blog with a picture of the beauty.... he he

with waxed paper I would guess you could "scratch" the design on it, but I don't think it would work if you were needing to carry it with you to refer back to, b/c once it's folded or wrinkled you'd get lines there too. Am I making sense?

I think the wax paper would work for that and I think it is called a "cartoon". Maybe someone else can help with that.

I think Katzz is describing the same way my friend Donna told me for transfering a pattern to her background. She traces the reversed drawing onto FREEZER paper with a dark pen, then fuses the freezer paper to the wrong side of her background fabric. When she puts this on a light box she can then see the design clearly in the correct orientation AND the fabric is stablized so she can easily and accurately trace the background. Remove the freezer paper when you are finished tracing and you can use it again if you are doing more than one block. For a very light or white fabric you don't even have to use the lightbox if you don't want. Absolutely ingenious!!

Sorry.....I've never heard of using wax paper....maybe someone else has tried it and can offer some tips????

I would assume that you could use it like I used the vinyl placement overlay. Ricky uses the backing from Steam-A-Seam for the same purpose in his Rhapsody Blog #37.

Katzzz, if you want to try hand applique you might be interested in looking at the tutorial I posted as I did mine! I have pictures and explanatory captions on my Webshots web page. It is just basic info geared towards beginners, and I hope it will encourage quilters to try the technique!
SEW LONG!

Love your block Connie!


And thanks Katzz for the well wishes. I don't do applique either but decided I'd try the fusible applique and free motion stitching on this. So far I haven't had the nerve to start the stitching!
