Update from Kelli
Hey there fellow applique admirers, I have some pics to show you! I am doing the Stars and Sprigs quilt by machine applique. I am tracing the shapes onto Floriani stitch and wash, then fusing to the fabric, cut around the shape with about a one eighth allowance, then, I use Elmers glue stick (the purple one) around the shape, then, using a finger pressing tool, shape the seam allowance over the edge of the stitch and wash, this is such a delightful process for me, I love this part more than the sewing :) I have all the shapes made, I have some gluing to do though, I have used Roxannes baste it glue to tack down my applique.
Cut out, ready to go yumminess!
I am starting to sew up the stars now, I just have to look up how :)
