now the fun begins-machine stitching your appliqued pieces. i use a buttonhole stitch. you can use which ever fancy stitch your machine does. even a small narrow zigzag would be fine. you can see with just changing the stitch length how it changes the look for the buttonhole stitch
i like to use sulky thread-it has a bit of a sheen to it. if your fabric is thin, you may want to use a stabilizer behind on the reverse side. a piece of tracing or typing paper works fine and just tear it away when you are finished
i have all 4 squares done(took about 45minutes/square to do). i just might have a chance to start stitching them together tonight after the hockey game
1 love it too:
Your block looks great. Thanks for the tutorial.
As for the readability of the font...it looks fine on my monitor (resolution is 1280 x 1024)
