Applique Thursday Giveaway 10/18/12
On Anna's garden block 5 I am going to do my freezer paper method, a little different than most. I iron the template to the fabric on the right side. Then I cut out my fabric piece leaving a 3/8th's seam allowance around the template. Then I remove the paper from the fabric and center it with the dull side to the back, shiny side showing, and turn over the seam allowance fuse it to the freezer paper. I then place the prepped piece on the background and fuse it in place, then stitch it down. Then I cut out the background from the back of the piece 1/4" from my stitch line and remove the paper.
Last week's winner of the book, Quilts for Ice Cream Lovers, is Robin! I've sent her an email and hope to hear from her soon. Here is this week giveaway book for all you paper pieceing lovers:
