    My question is in regards to the starch. Do you dilute the liquid starch or just use it straight from the container? Do you feel you need to remove the starch after finishing your work? Do you think it might attract bugs?

      I thin the starch as follows; 3 parts water to 1 part starch. And yes, you should remove it from the fabric.

    I love this idea! I’am new to quilting and was a little intimidated about applique but now I feel confident to try. I would have never thought about using the hole punch to secure the material with pins. Thanks!
