Welcome to Step 13 of making your Candy Corn Sampler!
Today is Awesome Appliqué Strip Continued.
On page 19, you’ll find the instructions & diagram to complete the center appliqué strip.
Like any task, practice makes perfect!
Below is the appliqué video for the blind hem stitch if you need a refresher.
It’s the same stitch for appliquéing the template shapes & the vine.
After all the stitching is complete, be sure to remove the paper templates.
Refer to page 3, Appliqué finishing to cut background fabric, wet shapes w a wet cloth, wait a couple minutes then remove templates. If it’s wet enough the papers should just pull right out.
It really is simple.
Using patience for this is my best advice.
If the paper doesn’t remove easily, get the piece a bit wetter.
Don’t forget, the “B” and the bird on the “OO” block will be added after assembling the top.

I know this part seems overwhelming to many, but if you use patience it’s really not hard.
If you need to, take a few days to get the appliqué strip made.
Just Keep Sewing…
