Coffee Shop was machine appliqued using blanket stitches but you can use any stitch you like, even invisible with monofilament. As I chose a solid fabric for both the cup and the steam, I thought blanket stitches would add texture to the motifs (besides the fact I like blanket stitching...).
What you will need:
8-1/2" x 8-1/2" square of background fabric
scraps of white fabric for steam
4" x 4" square of fabric for cup and handle
fusible web (I only use HeatnBond Lite)
matching thread for applique
here) onto smooth side of fusible web. Cut shapes and fuse them to wrong side of cup and steam fabrics (for more details about using a fusible web, click here).
Speaking of fun, Annmarie just sent me a picture of her latest blocks - they are beautiful!
The Loft, the block in the middle, as well as how different the blocks look from mine due to her choice of fabrics. Thanks for sending the picture, Annmarie. It makes up for the fact that we don't live in the same neighborhood. What would we do without the internet?
I hope your day is as bright, blue, and breezy as mine is. I will talk with you soon!
