Fusible web applique

This week I was working on a Christmas row quilt. For the gift boxes row I needed to fuse large squares to the background fabric, and then machine applique them. I chose to use only a few strips of fusible web (Heat'n Bond Lite) on the wrong side of each box (see picture) so I would not end up with too thick a surface to free-motion quilt on.

Since I did not put the strips of fusible web very close to the edge of the boxes, I was concerned that the fabric would fray. To my delight, the fraying was minimal and I cut the threads after I had machine quilted the blocks. The row turned out just as soft as I wanted it to be. Quilting it will be a breeze!

I will post a photo of the quilt when it is ready.
