I sorted out enough scraps to fit over the pattern and stitched them together.
Then I put some thin fusible interfacing, right sides together with the scraps, placed the paper pattern over it and sewed around.
The pattern calls for using raw edge fusible but I wanted turned edges.
The good news and the bad news. The fusible interfacing I use for this technique is cheap.
It is also tissue thin and tears easily like paper, so be careful when turning appliques.
This time I decided to just use them. They are each so cute, and I like cute, and my plan is to sew all these big blocks end to end to make a banner to go in my studio. Why ever not cut into my collection so I can enjoy the prints instead of storing them??? If I need a larger amount for some future project, well I will cross that fabric bridge when I come to it!
When I lived in Tampa I belonged to a cajun dance group. Oh we had fun, Cher!
laissez le bon temps rouler! We still love to do cajun jitterbug and zydeco dance. Alligators, flowers, butterflies and sail boats along the very bottom.
I mean, if you you can't have fun quilting then why not?
