|Two donuts starch basted and ready to sew down|
|I trimmed and clipped the center. I sprayed the starch into a small bottle and waited for the foam to turn into liquid. Then I dabbed it around the center fabric with a small paintbrush.|
|Using my Clover applique iron, I pressed the clipped edges to the applique paper.|
|Then I dabbed liquid starch around the outside of the piece and gradually pressed it over the applique paper.|
|The starch method leaves a softly pressed edge around the outside.|
|I slowly removed the paper. It came out easily.|
I used Untimate Applique Template Paper by P3 Designs.com
Another time I think I'll try using multiple pieces of regular freezer paper pressed together to make it a little thicker.
|Using my light box, I put the pattern under the block, positioned the circles, and pinned them in place. I made a cut where the yellow circle goes under the pink one.|
Upward and onward to all of you who haven't done this block yet.
Don't let it discourage you.
It isn't as hard as I thought it would be.
