Divide and Conquer Applique
Kathy K. Wylie Quilts – Divide and Conquer Applique
Turned-edge appliqué requires a seam allowance wide enough to turn under. The amount of preferred seam allowance may vary depending on the fabric, the skill of the individual, or the shape of the appliqué patch.

So what do you do when the appliqué shape precludes a sufficient seam allowance? Divide and conquer!
