I'm a pretty new quilter, only about a year or so, and need some help please!
I'm attempting my first applique quilt and need some advice! I hear it's best to have a seam allowance and turn under to prevent fraying; but then I see many other articles about needle turning, machine embroidery, reverse - honestly, I just want the piece to not come apart and to do this as easily as possible, as it's going to take me quite a while!
Can anyone offer any advice or give me the link to a helpful site?
You've come to the right place. If you'd like a tutorial for applique that looks like it's been done by hand, but it actually stitched much faster by machine, I can vouch for the tutorial on this site.
It's our Invisible Machine Applique
. When you click the link, you'll be taken to the first page where I've shown life size examples of what the applique looks like. Click on each of the first two images to see the close-ups. This is my absolute, favorite go-to method for projects that I want to applique but don't have the time to do them by hand.
Let me know if you like it!
