This week we are headed back over to Natalies place for pages 8, 9, & 60 over at natalie-ever-after.blogspot.com
There is a TON of applique in this project. (A third of the blocks are applique.)
We all have our favorite methods of applique. Each quilting host will share with you their favorite method of applique. I use a template free back basting needle turn applique. HERE is an awesome tutorial of the method from Tropical Applique. HERE is another super slick tutorial by Applique Addict.
Here is what I accomplished this week :-)
All of this applique might kill me!! For the flower one, I actually ended up using freezer paper templates. The shapes are SO small!!!
For this one, I used the back basting method and pretty much hate the result :/
I am going to redo it with a freezer paper template.
