Krista from Poppyprint shares her first tutorial, the Crop Circle Table Runner Tutorial. She writes that it’s, “…A fun table runner using an easy, beginner-ish machine applique technique for circles (or leaves, flower petals or any simple shape, really). I like to call this ‘Fabric Stickers’ and it’s a nice way to applique circles so that they are soft and puffy looking, not the flat, glued-on appearance you get when using Steam-a-Seam, Heat ‘n Bond or Wonder Under…etc. I’ve also used this method to attach my quilt labels since you can stitch the applique shapes on by machine or hand once they are fused to their background. With the hand running stitch I used on the table runner, the circles almost look reverse appliqued– an unexpected visual trick!”
