Thank you for those links. I have often been wondering how to use it the official way.

Absolutely! It is one of the many "other" ways to do applique! Here are a couple of videos that explain the process.
Please let us know if you try it and what you think of the process!

I especially like the way Annie demonstrates top-stitching the "cleavage" of her heart by dropping the feed dogs!

Wondering if Charlotte's Web (fusible thread from Superior Threads) would work for raw-edge applique this month?

Margo you have REALLY outdone yourself on the video this month! OMG, almost an hour of fabulous instruction!!! I'm starting to feel guilty about taking up so much of your free time... I purchased an hour-long applique video for $25 last year at Paducah, so that means that my "Margo tab" must be up to about $100! Would you believe me if I told you that "the check's in the mail"?! :wink: :wink: :wink:

Why do we need another piece of background fabric for the applique's when we already did one that size in March?

Jan, in March we made the side units (8-1/2" x 16-1/2")and corner units (8-1/2" x 8-1/2").

This month we are cutting background fabrics 16-1/2" x 16-1/2" for the four large applique motifs in the center of the quilt.

Margo,

Thank you for this great video. I'm used to appliqué with turned edges, but in a different way (one of the other 10 methods!), and I think I will try yours. I don't know if I will use it on this project, as I wanted to try the raw edge method also... Ahhh! what to do? :?

And thanks for the last tip, we don't own a pool, but I will buy one of these pool noodles!
