Clam Shell Applique Block
I just finished basting my clam shells to make this applique block for Green Tea and Sweet Beans. I've been moving the pieces around but I think I may end up with this arrangement. I'm going to live with it for a few days just to make sure!
This is how I prepare my applique pieces. I iron freezer paper to the wrong side of the fabric. I trim around the freezer paper right before I baste. I make little notches in the seam allowance so they will lay flat.
I've got to decide what background fabric to use. I only have 2 blocks left! I can't believe I'm almost done with the quilt top. Borders are a whole other story!
