This is Hand Applique using the freezer paper amd Starch method. I love this book called "Hop To It!" Applique'd Blocks & Projects by Edyta Sitar fo Laundry Basket Quilts.
I am showing you my supplies that I used for the class I took.
Fabric safe ink pen or pencil (Identi-pen, thin line Sharpie, micron pen, or mechanical pencil; something permanent on paper that won't transfer to fabric if hot or wet. (Regular ball point pen is NOT good.)
Small sharp scissors for fabric, and paper scissors
Stencil brush 1/4 inch or paint brush--I use a paintbrush with a base of 1/4 inch
Mini iron with holder ie: Clover
Spray starch and a small container to hold the starch, like a mini jam jar
Roxanne's Glue-baste-it, a small container is fine, but not the teeny tiny one-it's too hard to squeeze
Small ironing surface to press your fabric on, I use an Omnigrid combination cutting and pressing board
Thread to match fabrics (I like DMC 50 weight, silk 100 weight if you already have it, Masterpiece, Bottom Line; the smaller the thread the less it will show)
Stiletto or wooden skewer
Needles (I like skinny ones, size 10, 11 or 12; the 12s bend easily tho; I prefer Applique sharps--milliners or straw needles are good, betweens are also OK but they are very short.)
Masking tape to hold pattern and fabric to light box;
I love Perfect circles templates, you can iron on them they are by Karen Kay Buckley
I used modern fabrics with keeping the same color pallet for all my blocks. I ran out of the rassbery modled fabric and had to find something to match. Boy what a challenge!
Sewing them down will be done later.
Unfinished block still needs large circle berries.
I am still not great at turning under the flags left on my leaves does anyone have a good trick for this??
I found a nice tutorial Here
One thing to note, is I used double freezer paper to make my templates a little stronger. You want to iron 2 sheets of frezer paer together smooth out the wrinkles then trace your shapes.
