Brilliant! My blog is new and I'm already behind! It's been two weeks since I posted last, but a lot has happened in those two weeks, so I'm not going to beat myself up.
The pieces are appliqued using fusible web and a straight stitch. I've never used a straight stitch for applique, but I saw it in a book and thought it was pretty cool, since the fusible web will be holding the pieces down, too. I don't recommend that stitch for anything that will be washed often.
