It’s a Quick Process that Creates a Polished Look!

If you enjoy fusible applique projects, you may have finished one or more of them with blanket stitches. Did you wonder how to hide the starting and stopping point while stitching around the fused shapes?

The following video shows you how to blend the starting and stopping point stitching, and how to hide the tails for a smooth and polished finish. It’s a simple process that only takes a minute. One thing we’d add is that it’s a good idea to tie the threads on the back into a small knot for projects that will get a lot of wear.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
