So I have spent the last 24 hours obsessing over applique'. I have only done one applique' pattern before, and it isn't finished. (Surprised? I think not!) In that one I sewed some kind of backing on the piece, turned it inside out, and then hand sewed it down. I think it looks ok. Probably should finish it before next Halloween, but don't know what I'd do with it as I'm not really into wall hangings anymore!
Anyway, I have read and thought, and I think I will use the fusible stuff and then use the blanket stitch on my machine. I had to dig out my Janome 4800 QC , which is fancier than the Pfaff I use all the time for piecing. After a 30 minute search for the manual, I think I'm in business. What I hate about this is having to change thread all the time. I dread it.
If anyone reads this, which I doubt, and you're an applique person, what do you do? Any hints? Encouragements?
Happy Tuesday. I'm a little sad as my grandkids have finally gotten back to school today. They needed to go, but it will be lonely around here!
