Applique by Machine by On-Point TV

Low in-store inventory, may be subject to change.

The French word applique means “applied.”  Applique motifs are cut from one or more fabrics and are laid on top of a larger background fabric.  Quilting doesn’t require applique, but applique can add so much to the design. Finished applique quilts are quite beautiful.

There are traditionally two methods of attaching the applique: 1) carefully turning the edges under to prevent fraying, sewing—usually by hand—using tiny invisible stitches; and 2) sewing around the raw edges with a blanket stitch or satin stitch.

This technique is sort of a combination of both—the edges are all turned so there is no fraying but instead of being sewn by hand with invisible stitches, these techniques are done with an invisible machine stitch
