Birch Fabrics Tutorial
We loved the design since it was both contemporary and whimsical…and thought it would be fun for Melissa to do a tutorial about the techniques she used for the quilt.
Take it away Melissa…
The design for the Pebbles Circa 52 quilt has many circles therefore I chose to applique the pebbles onto the quilt. I ended up trying two different adhesive methods and wanted to share what I learned with you.
2. Now this is the messy part. Spray the 505 Spray and Fix to the back of the applique piece. Hold the can about 12″ from the piece and be sure that whatever is behind the piece will not get ruined by being sprayed with sticky stuff. I suggest putting some paper down to catch the spray.
Please note that the picture above is just an illustration. I did not use the spray directly on my cutting mat or it would have been ruined. I just wanted a prettier background besides a paper bag 🙂
3. Lay the applique piece onto the background piece and smooth out any wrinkles.
The remaining directions are the same for both adhesives:
Thanks Melissa! xx Cynthia
