  2. Hello, I am unsure of the instructions when they say “press to the backside”. Also I have tried to access the Qnn video regarding Invisible Machine Applique and I keep getting looped around without access to the video (I have registered). I can contact Qnn tomorrow for help with that but need clearer instructions for preparing the templates. Is there a place I can go on YouTube that you would suggest? Thank you, Carolyn Walsh

    • Hi Carolyn:
      Let me know if this is clear-
      2. Pin or use a dab of glue stick to position template on wrong side of fabric. Leave at least ½” between template shapes for seam allowances. Use your rotary cutter and ruler or scissors to cut around each shape adding a ¼” seam allowance as you do. Do not remove the freezer paper. Press to backside the top curved edge of fabric on templates #2, #3, #4, #5 and #6.

  3. OK, I found the You Tube instructions from Fons and Porter. Do I go ahead and press the seam allowance to the freezer paper all the way around each of the templates? So, in essence when joining the pieces I am joining the edges of the turned in edge? Is that correct?

    Thank you, Carolyn Walsh

    • You just iron back the top (rounded) edge of the hills to the backside (toward the freezer paper). This will create a finished edge for the top of your hills when you stitch them.
