Down & Dirty; Quick & Easy Applique Circle

Here’s a quick method for making a circle applique with the machine’s built-in stitches. In a later post, we’ll discuss the auto-applique feature but for now, this is a ‘down and dirty, quick and easy’ way to applique.

On the main screen, touch the square and heart key. App1

Select the circle with the running stitch outline. App2

Touch Set. App3A

Touch Add. App4

Add another running stitch outline and touch Set. Touch Add and select the satin stitch outline. Touch Set. App14

Touch Edit End. App7

Select the spools icon. App8

The image on the screen shows the last color that was imported.  App9

Use the spool plus-minus icons to move back to color 2. App10

Touch the hand at the bottom of the screen to tell the machine to stop before color #2. This stop will allow you to place the applique fabric over the outline that stitched in color 1. App11

Advance to the third color and add a hand to stop the machine before the satin stitch outline is applied.  This stop will allow you to trim the applique fabric. App12

Touch Close and stitch the applique. App13

    I have the 10 needle Enterprise by baby lock. I was learning how to use the machine by trial and error, then one of the nice ladies on the site told us about the Inspirational Guide to the Enterprise. It cost me $200 ( probably cheaper at other shops) it follows along with what we are lerning on this site which is great because I can go back to reread while I’m on the machine with out going on line and hunting for what I was trying to do. I would like to learn to do photo stitch too. The book is worth the money. pat

    I love the information that you post on your blog. It is always so helpful especially when you are fairly new at embroidery. I always try to learn as much as I can. But I wish that when you post this helpful information that we could download it as a PDF file to save or print to refer to when it’s needed. I forget some of it by the time I’m ready to use it. I love to have something that I can refer to. Just a suggestion!! Thanks and i love your blog.
