Thought I'd try doing applique on my sewing machine. It was quickly apparent that my machine was mutliating my work. HORRORS!
Then I decided to do it by hand. However, fusible web is new to me...trimmed the applique too close and found it was fraying, web or no web. Frustrated, I set it aside for a week (or three).
Finally, I resorted to the technique I learned from Grandma, and got better results, pictured here. On to piecing the rest of this table runner.
FYI - my grandmother will be 100 years old this weekend. Happy Birthday Grandma!
