If you missed my tutorial on appliqué visit my earlier post.Applique Method
I decided to take the plunge (a really big step for me...teehee) and machine appliqué my block (not enough time to do everything by hand). I used the Invisafil thread in the top and in the bobbin. Most of the appliqué pieces blended fine with using the black thread but the star being so light needed the beige thread. I'm very happy with how this turned out...whew. I think I might do the machine appliqué more often. Hmmm...opens lots of possibilities, need to do more thinking on that.
Here is a close up of the machine appliqué. Don't know if you can see it but, I did a very small zig zag around all my shapes.
