Great idea. I could use it for the mini quilts I make and give away. I could just applique something small in the middle of the backing to cover the hole. Much nicer, and a decorated back, too.

Embroidery punching

I am searching for site which provide all kind of embroidery digitizing services. Hopefully i will get the desired services from your site you mention above.

That's a clever tip - but what you can also do is make your backing in two pieces and sew part of the seam with a larger stitch. (And I usually do a lock stitch at the beginning and end of the larger stitched part)Sew as for your idea and then unpick the section of large stitches and turn through that hole. As you say - you get a much neater edge.

    Colourque (R) is a techique I developed and use on many of my projects. It is nothing scientific, anyone can do it, it is meant to be fun and easy to do... it is simply using coloured pencils on fabric to get an applique effect. 'Faux Applique' a comprehensive technique book on the method is due for release late November. Watch this space!
