Here's a closeup before washing. I used a straight stitch and no fraying. I have to admit that I did get a bit of fraying after washing because of operator error. Note to self: read the instructions and then read them again.
But the fraying is minor compared to using traditional applique methods. I'm glad I added the glasses -- they just add a little something.
The kit I purchased was meant to make only one pillow, but I managed to get two through creative cutting. I didn't have quite enough of the backing, so I used the fabric that was included for binding to give me that little bit extra I needed.
I think I'll try the gigantic block that is included with the pattern to make a baby quilt.
