Carolina Lily quilt update:
In my last post I moaned about my difficulty with curving the half inch bias for the stems (ugly bunching happening - am not going there).
The back basting applique is working very well for me as an alternative. Here's how I've been doing it...hope it doesn't bore you silly but I love seeing how other people do things - and the more pictures the better.
|Marking the back of block and pinning fabric underneath - sorry bit dark|
|Basting the applique fabric to block background - from the back|
|Needleturn applique as basting removed - on the front|
|Rest of applique pieces pinned ready to sew down too|
