There’s an Echo Here

When you’re machine quilting around appliqué motifs or designs, add just one or two lines of echo quilting around the entire shape to really make the quilting and the appliqué stand out. Leave a 1/16″ to 1/8″ space between the motif and the echo quilting line. This is also a great technique to give machine quilting motifs some extra panache and a truly finished look.
