Anne shows us how to work this simple applique that has no raw edges.This is part of our Throwback Thursday programme taking videos from our archives.
This is such a great idea for applique but only works with really simple, naive shapes; it does away with all those raw edges which leaves you free to use simple running stitch and focus threads.
It is suggested that you use a product such as Stayflex or Vilene, which have a glue side to them, but you can also use fabric, and if you use the same fabric as the front the edge gets disguised a little.
Anne lives in rural Devon, in a thatched cottage which she shares with her husband and two dogs. Her patchwork decorates the house throughout and you can’t help but be inspired surrounded by her work and all those old beams.
Anne has sewn all of her life, prolifically for the last 25 years. She works across a wide range of patchwork and appliqué techniques and designs — from the Navajo blanket quilt that includes simple and advance techniques to simple cushion designs.
