I can only get better right? I have found my applique method and “bible.” I am happy so far and the tips that are in “The New Appliqué Sampler-Learn to Appliqué the Piece O’ Cake Way” are excellent, from the templates to the toothpick! My points are getting much better. The flowers on this will not be the same distance as on the pattern but I can fudge it. I am enjoying the process….practice, practice, practice.
