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!

Take a look at my process for mixing up the fabrics in the applique borders.
