Making Quick Applique Circles for the Winterwood Quilt

My very first attempt at video ! I hope you enjoy this little video clip showing how I quickly make all the circles needed for the Winterwood Quilt.

I would love your feedback, happy to answer any questions you have about this technique.

Happy Stitching

Sharon

Thank you for the video. Can you tell us what is the surface you are ironing on? It almost looks like waxed paper because the fabric just glides along on it.

Hi Sharon,

I can tell you’ve reused the circles . How do you get the freezer paper out without tearing it?

Thanks,
Eileen

A friend sent me a link to this post to help me overcome my fear of appliqueing circles. Your video instruction is excellent. Thank you for sharing!

What brand iron are you using, Sharon? It seems to be very good & hot clear to the tip as you are working.

Oh my gosh! A picture really is worth a 1000 words! I see exactly what you are doing that I am not, and I am going to try this! Your circles don’t have any little pointies on them, and that’s what I want. Thank you SO much for doing this video!

Thread choices for invisible machine applique
Thread choices for invisible machine applique

Invisible machine applique seems to be mostly associated with either smoke or clear monopoly or nylon threads. When starting my journey with invisible machine applique these are the threads I used too. Now of course there are so many wonderful threads available, many of them suitable. The only thing that may be of concern is that you need a variety of colours, with monopoly smoke and clear threads there are only two colour choices, therefore limiting how many colours you need.
