1. How do you size your quilts?
It’s all visual with me. It just has to look right. My quilts are not made to be used on a bed or anything else. They are wall hangings.
2. Do you hand applique?
Yes. I love doing as much by hand as possible. I don’t feel comfortable with machines and I don’t care for fusable applique. This is just personal taste. I don’t feel everyone should be like me. Plus, I like things to look hand made.
3. Do you embroider to cover the edges of the applique?
Yes and no. I often embroider the edge of my applique, but I don’t need to. I finally have gotten enough skill that my applique looks pretty sweet.
4. How do you do the finish layout of the appliqued shapes onto the background fabric?
First, using pins, I make a pin line that is square on the background fabric. Then I place and move around the applique pieces until it visually looks good to me.
If you have any more questions just let me know.
