Quilt With Us

Good Morning everyone I have enrolled in a BOM and it is a turn applique and i have never done that before . I watched a video on you tube looked easy there but my pieces are tiny with zig zag edges like maple leaves . Im not to sure how you can fold all that under and look nice . tried one leaf and burnt my finger on iron not cool. Do you think it would look just as nice if i just use a fusible web and iron it on and sew around it. What do you folks think i should do?Thank you for any advice. monica schwartz

Hi Monica, why not join the needleturn applique group here at QWU? You will get some great help and be able to draw from a group of experienced to "new" appliquers and the advice is free!!!

Fusible web should work if you are using the sewing machine. Buy the lightest you can get for it will be stiff. Leaves tips can be tricky. do not fold both sides, when you have the tip stitch, then turn under the other side. CT now has Roxanne Applique needles, they also may help.

Click on this link below and it gives you instruction on 'how to'...I mostly use freezer paper with needle turn applique....FP on right side of fabric press pattern on...cut it out leaving a 1/4" (I eye ball it)....position...I use something very thin to draw my pattern on....and put on top of square and pin pattern and line my pieces up in between pattern and fabric and pin...and then I turn my fabric with a flat tooth pic and I can do the smallest piece...works great for me...my first was sunbonnet sue with very little pieces....OR use light weight fusible and stitch with sewing machine or button hole stitch with machine or by hand...if you use heavy duty fusible you cannot machine stitch ....well that is it in a nutshell....check out the website and it will give you 'how to' and just go for it!!!! Blessings
