Mary Moss --Snowflake Applications #4, 5, and 6

These are the final 3 of Mary's Snowflakes that will appear on this topic.

Being more traditional, from an applique perspective, I would iron the snowflake design onto the fabric that I would want to applique to a background fabric. Then I would mark around the snowflake, then cut within 1/8 inch of the design (batiks would be best to use). This would be basted to the background fabric, then needle turned. Alternately, one could also iron Lite Steam-a-Seam to the back of the snowflake to applique, press it to the background fabric and machine applique around the design after trimming the snowflake design to the marking line.

Margaret, I am so impressed! I know nothing about this art and it is so beautiful and patient and full of the master's energy going from fingers into the fabrics. Great.
