Flip and Fuse Applique

This new applique technique uses fusible interfacing to give your applique pieces the look of needle turn without actually using the needle turn technique. Working from the book "Flip and Fuse Fun" we will learn the technique to make a table runner and 6 placemats. Although this looks hard, it's actually suited for any skill level.
