Monona Grove Throw
I learned a couple things:
1. For a large blanket, cut fringe to 5" rather than the 3-4" that is usually recommended. I cut them to 4" and would have liked them to be a little longer.
2. Press on stabilizer is expensive and can become very difficult to remove. It's easy to lift off and even reposition at first - but the longer it remains in contact with the fabric, the harder it is to get off. I went slow and took my time, as I am new to machine applique. That was my mistake - all the while the stabilizer was slowly cementing itself to the fleece. It wasn't pretty. I'll definitely use freezer paper as a stabilizer next time I get the urge to do applique. :)
