As soon as I printed this pattern out - in the 12 inch block size - I knew it would be a tricky one to applique. There are lots of tiny 'ins' and 'outs' there !
So I tried to select a red fabric with the finest grain to reduce the chance of fraying (this is from Collections Friendship by Marcus) and red thread to match. I have a few different favourites in fine applique threads - in this case the YLI Soft Touch cotton was a great colour match.
Not perfect but it's all good practice...
