Usually when I'm appliqueing I apply one piece at a time and then add the next layer. With the tiny pieces in the giraffe's face I didn't want them to be in the wrong place so I layered the whole thing at one time and it worked out well. I think that I can do this when the design is relatively small. If you do this on a block that's really big like 30 x 30 pieces start falling off as you rotate it around under the needle.
Isn't he cute? I show you how I quilted him next time,
I hope you get to quilt today!
