I've been working on another quilt for Quiltmaker the past few days and these aren't my normal techniques. The applique, I'm fine with. I actually love to do this kind of fusible applique with my Janome. I use the Blind Hem stitch and set the width to 3.5-4 and the length to almost .5
Makes a nice faux buttonhole stitch, as my machine doesn't have a real buttonhole stitch.
This technique is new to me although I've seen my friend Angie do it at retreats. It's turning out nicely although takes quite a bit of time.

Have you picked up the latest Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks issue?
Page 8 features a quilt that I assembled and quilted. I made some of these blocks at the Old Tippecanoe Quilt Guild retreat at Camp Tecumseh in September this year.
I didn't go to bed Saturday night after 1:00am, I think. I was bound and determined to get this quilt put together.
I came home from the retreat, loaded it on Mabel and quilted a meandering feather design on everything except the white border, which had feathers too. I applied the binding and it was on the Fedex truck Tuesday headed for Colorado.
