My wall is a little sparse this week. I've finished several projects and haven't really started anything new yet!
I do have the on-going Christmas Wish project from Red Brolly. I finished the redwork embroidery section for part 5 and appliqued the curved top to the block.....
I have appliqued all the curved parts by machine. I used a method taught by Sharon Schambers. I started the same way, making a template and trimming the curve and cutting slits to allow the fabric to press to the back. But then I pinned it into place and used some "school glue" with a tiny tip to add a fine line of glue to the exact edge. This was pressed dry with a hot, dry iron. Then I opened up the area and machine stitched on the pressed line. The glue will come out with the first washing. I've used this method many times, and I also use it when making a mitered corner on a border - very secure and very accurate!
Head over to Judy's blog to see what other awesome projects are on the design walls this week!
