Wow - totally beautiful!

I didn't see anywhere in the posts - what size is it?  I imagine it's lap-sized, but I would love to have one for my queen-sized bed!!  Grin

I cheated a bit and used Steam A Seam 2 (a double sided fusible), but I have a bit of a bizarre and painful way of doing it.  Or maybe it's common, and nobody talks about it, haha.  I cut out the steam-a-seam in the shape I want, and then cut out the fabric a bit bigger than the shape.  Then I pull off the backing on one side of the steam-a-seam, paste the fabric down, and remove the backing on the opposite side of the steam-a-seam.  Then I go to work with my mini iron, turning the fabric towards the back and ironing it down over the other side of the steam-a-seam, burning my fingers in the process.  I don't necessarily think it's better than hand-turning.  I just don't know how to hand-turn very well!  I need more practice with applique because I'm a total noob at it.  I wouldn't even say using the steam-a-seem is a time saver.  It just helps me to control the fabric better when I'm working with super eensy teensy appliques. Smiley

Thank you for that, I never would have thought of it. I have the same problem with keeping fabric under control, I may have to use this technique
