In this technique tutorial Sophie of Sophie Junction shows us how to use bias strip appliqué for tightly curved elements such as handles, vines, rainbows, etc. More from Sophie on this excellent technique:
"I put these tips together for the Block Lotto, to help everyone produce nice flat curved handles for their Liberated Basket blocks. This technique works for any bias appliqué strips: stems, vines, branches etc.
"When it comes to quilting, we are usually taught to avoid working with bias edges, using STEAM when pressing and pulling/contorting our fabrics. But sometimes, all of these things can work for you to achieve the desired effect."
