Continuation of Freezer Paper Applique Method

Freezer Paper Applique - Part II

Continue to take small stitches along one edge of the applique piece. End off.
Start in the same manner on the other side of the piece. When you have gone about halfway, you will need to take out the freezer paper. You do this by cutting and removing the basting stitches. Then slide something (I use a small knitting needle) to separate the freezer paper piece from the fabric. Then pull it out.

Carefully fold the applique piece back on its original fold and continue to applique to the end of the piece. End off.
The stitches should look something like this on the back.

The front should look like this. You are now ready to attach this piece to the Maple Leaf Block.
