Tips to Machine Applique Sharp Corners – Like on a Star of David!

In this video, I show you how to get beautiful results when finishing sharp corners with machine applique. The video covers the classic method as well as a technique I developed (stumbled onto) out of necessity while appliqueing lots of Stars of David with lots of sharp corners. It’s slightly faster than the classic method and keeps the sewing flowing.
