Tips for Machine Appliqué
Pivoting at Corners, Curves and Points
Pivoting Outside Curves
Stop at the first pivot point with the needle down in the fabric on the right-hand swing of the needle. Raise the presser foot, pivot the fabric slightly, and begin stitching to the next pivot point. Repeat as needed to round the entire outer curve.
TIP: To maintain evenness between your stitches, pivot more often on a gentle curve than a sharp one.
