|Buzzin' Around designed by Mary Sorenson|
If you take a closer look at the cone flowers you will notice that the black and red polka dot fabric is covering lots of seam allowances. If I had just appliqued the fabric directly over the seams the polka dot fabric would has not looked nice and flat and rounded. Instead, I lined the shape with a low loft cotton batting.
First, I pinned the cotton batting in place and then I basted from the back using the marked line as my guide. Notice that I basted just inside the pencil line.
