Applique

This makes so much sense to me! The only thing the freezer paper does is give you an outline, and removing the freezer paper is a challenge. You have to cut a slit in the foundation fabric and pull it out.

This is brilliant! You still get the outline, then just peel it off!

I've seen this done before. But I unfortunately don't have the patience for this.To me I think needle turn would be a bit easier. I love the quilt they showed. I've been getting into the Baltimore Album quilts a lot lately and have been looking at various methods. For now sticking with the fusible one. I'm getting ready to start on the applique portion of the Sprouts, I may try using the fusible method of just have fusing around the edge of the piece so it doesn't get so stiff.

I use this method for larger pieces. You can trim away some of the center. Freezer paper and glue work well for tiny pieces.

Links to all 3 parts of the tutorial

Seems that she peels off the freezer paper before she positions the pieces on the foundation, so she's not removing freezer paper after the applique is stitched to the foundation.

Hmmmmm. So many applique techniques, so little time to try them all.

I enrolled in Beth Ferrier's appliqué class on Craftsy. She demonstrated using freezer paper. But there is also now a product that is a fusible wash away paper that she uses. A little pricey but an alternative to having to remove the freezer paper.

She is very particular about points and smooth curves. She uses a cuticle stick to finess the curves and points.

I have done this technique before but with the freezer paper on the inside (that's also how Beth does it) I machine sew with invisible thread. Doing it that way I feel like I need the paper edge to stabilize my sewing. I can see
putting the freezer paper on the right side if you are hand stitching.

Beth's class was pretty good. I picked up a few pointers from her class.

I'm trying this method. Nervous about sewing with nylon thread. Has anyone tried this on BL Symphony?

I'm currently doing an applique quilt using a similar method but with fusible washaway and a cuticle stick. I then plan to machine applique with a very tiny zigzag stitch.
