This is my method to make prepared-edge-Appliqué-blocks.
If I find a better way after several blocks, I'll post an update.
From now on I sew as usual, like with needleturn.
Sure, it's not yet as good and invisible as I want them to be. But this is just the second block I made with that method. I'll get there!
The finished blocks are here.
ok, after several blocks I learned several things:
- 3 Freezer Papers are too much. 1 is not enough, I always folded the paper during ironing. 2 papers is the best for me.
- I copy the pattern onto the dull side of the paper (shiny side down). I iron the 2nd paper on top of that dull side. That way I still can see the pattern and cut it out and the pen will never get in touch with the fabric. It's much easier to write on the dull side.
- During cutting the Freezer Paper it's better to cut more than not enough. The fabric will cover small uneven parts.
- Don't cut outer curves, only inner curves.
- During ironing you can use a stiletto or a Olfa-hera-marker.
