Ok, applique gurus…I would love some input from you. I am to the applique stage on my cousin’s log cabin. Right now, I think my plan is to do fusible with satin stitch on the edges. Or would you recommend a different method? This quilt, though I’m sure it will be well cared for, will be used. It is intended for their bed. This is the applique pattern I am to use. It is their cattle brand.
It will go here, in the pieced center of the log cabin quilt, barn raising layout.
Another question is that I do not have the right color of embroidery thread. The applique will be done in the darkest of the browns I am using in the logs. I do, however, have the right color in Signature cotton machine quilting thread. Any reason not to use it for the satin stitching? Do I need to wait til I can get the right color of brown embroidery thread?
Thanks for any help! I really want to get this right the first try!
