How to Sew Appliqué using the Spray Starch Method

Learn how to sew spray starch appliqué!

Stephanie Soebbing of Quilt Addicts Anonymous walks you through how to prepare your templates, apply spray starch to the edge of your pieces and set them in place with an iron. Then she walks you through how to attach the appliqué pieces to your background square using an invisible stitch and matching thread.

This is Stephanie’s favorite appliqué method for special projects that are meant to be cherished, or when she wants a fun portable project. Just prep your pieces ahead of time and take the tiny pieces with you.
