Anne shows us how to work this simple applique that has no raw edges.
Turned Applique Patchwork with no raw edges
This is such a great idea for applique but only works with really simple, naïve 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 with this fast turn method and if you use the same fabric as the front the edge it gets disguised a little.
