Turn Those Raw Edges Under

Today I’m going to share with you a great tutorial on an applique method called “Freezer Paper Machine Applique”.  I’m not for sure if this is the “traditional” freezer paper method, rather it is the freezer paper method I use –bits and pieces coming from all sorts of different outlets.

Have you noticed the new pages on my blog?  I’m now offering a “Quilt Patterns” page and a new “Free Tutorials” page.  I’ll be posting tutorials on a regular basis and if you would like to stay informed about future tutorials like this one, please sign-up for my newsletter or RSS feed.

And guess what?  Because I make things that add character, warmth, and charm to a space, without the extravagance that might otherwise make beautiful things inaccessible to those with children, I turn my raw edges under.  Yes, that’s right, I turn them under.  I find that the quality and the durability is MUCH greater when edges are turned under on applique pieces.
