Work in Progress Wednesday
I have been trying out fused applique with a straight edge stitch, with swirls on the leaves, the sewing itself went well, but I don't like the way the edges tend to fray a bit, it drives me nuts!!... the fusing that I used was Steam a seam 2, so I have bought some Heat n Bond lite to try instead.
The applique is done the same time as the quilting, which is great as the project has moved along quite quickly.
I have also had a go at Mc Tavishing, but with added bananas and bubbles, and I'm really pleased with the texture that they create.
