blind app 1.jpgI was recently working on a quilt that had strips that I wanted to applique down.  I wanted a small applique stitch, one that actually looked like it had been hand appliqued.  My Elna machine had the perfect stitch. It is located in the Applique category and is on almost all Elna machines.

Thread your machine and wind a bobbin with matching thread. Attach the F2 Open Toe Satin Stitch foot for better viewing of the stitching.   I increased the stitch width to 1.4 so I could see a little more of the stitch.  If you thread the machine with monofilament and leave the stitch width as the machine sets it, you will get a blind applique look.  Don’t be afraid to try different settings and different threads.
