I have quite a few applique projects I would like to make. The first one I am hoping to make is a cushion design I found in a 1902 book on "Progressive Design." I think I'm going to start with the one on the top right.
Then I found the software had a really great offset tool, so I could easily have the program add the 1/4" seam allowance.
I don't actually need the mylar pieces, but I was thinking it would be so much easier to iron over the 1/4" seam allowance if I can fold the fabric edges around the smaller mylar piece. And ironing first will make it much easier to sew these pieces down on the background fabric.
(A couple days later) Done!
