Stitching straight line applique for instant quilting satisfaction! from Quilt Social

 

Do you have all your applique pieces ready? Check out yesterday’s post if you missed it.

To begin quilting the Magic Mushroom table runner, sandwich your table runner by placing the backing fabric on a flat surface, right side down.

Next, add your batting and smooth gently and try not to pull too much on the batting or it will become distorted.

Finally add your pieced top and fused applique top, again smoothing gently in place.

Aren’t the Banyan Batiks beautiful? I particularly love the Sun colorway of the Daisy Chain collection. This collection is shipping out in ...
