Laura Stone Roberts demonstrates the use of paper-backed fusible web in appliquéing shapes to fabric backgrounds. Includes three options for further secure shapes with edge stitching.
1.) Trace templates without seam allowances on paper side of paper-backed fusible web.
2.) Cut out, leaving a small margin beyond the drawn lines.
3.) Following manufacturer’s instructions, fuse to wrong side of appliqué fabric.
4.) Cut out on drawn line.
5.) Position appliqué on quilt where desired, and fuse to quilt following manufacturer’s instructions.
6.) Finish appliqué edges by machine using a buttonhole stitch, satin stitch, or stitch of your choice. For tips on machine buttonhole stitch, refer to our Bodacious Blanket Stitching by Machine tutorial.
