I love applique. I have not had enough time to practice it, so I hate it, too, because it never turns out exactly the way I have it in my head. Just came across this video an applique with freezer paper by Rose Hughes (“fast piece applique” via Martingale) on youtube and think it might make a huge difference in how I approach the giant quilt I am planning. Thought y’all might find it useful, too.
