I have to say, though, that I rarely use it... the EQ software Help usually tells me all I need to know. Thanks for the link to the silk thread site... the silk is so much better on these tiny pieces

    ND... your blocks are perfect! glad that you found a way to get them done
    Hi, Nancy!
    Thank you very much!
    I wil sen the company an email with my query.
    Exactly, I figured that would come with a manual box, but my ignorance of the language … I do not think they use a lot! Hahaha!!!
    Someday I hope everything is written in Spanish!
    A big hug!

    Thanks for the complements on the blocks. I am using freezer paper templates for the majority of the blocks. For the curved ones like the drunkards path, I will use Press and Seal because it is so flexible. I love the tip to use glue. Ill need to get some to add to my sewing kit.

    Any help will be appreciated
    Sorry I can not help! Today I cut the pieces of paper and try to sew the weekend that block.
    I think we'd better make other blocks and leave that for a few days. It's what works for me when something does not come out!
    I hope we can find a solution at all!
    A hug!

I then used a bead of Elmer's glue along the bottom seam allowance. With the freezer paper on, if you try to pull the two pieces flat as if they are already sewn, that lines the seam up just right. This is how it looks when glued.

    Hi, Nancy!
    I just bought a book called "Piec-lique: Curves the New Way" by Sharon Schamber (sold here: http://www.americanquilter.com/books...il.php?id=6681)
    I did not read everything, but in photos she just explained this way of linking the curved pieces.
    I just put the book together with my blocks and secure future will prove it!
    Thank you very much!
    A big hug!

    @QuiltnNan: nice block. I am avoiding pieced curves like the plague and opted to piece a 4 square background and appliqué the circle. Pics on Sunday. Happy quilting!

    I am just totally confused as how to do this B1 block. I know nothing about freezer paper or how to applique. I need help.

    I have found that the most critical part of sewing any circle or curve that has to fit together is to cut precisely. If the seam allowance on the convex and concave curves match, then your drunkards path or circle will fit perfectly. Virginia Walton sews circles into 'holes' without pinning! or with very few pins. The circle is cut exactly 1/4" wider than the seamline and the piece of fabric with the hole is cut precisely 1/4" smaller than the seamline. When it is clipped it cant be sewn exactly right. It sounds real simple, but it really does work - when I've messed up I can usually find the mistake is in the cutting.

    bpowers, have you checked out the reverse applique instructions on That Quilt? I, like you had never used freezer paper, had never done reverse applique (much less even regular applique!) before and while the instructions looked very hard to me...once I started following them picture by picture it went very well , I enjoyed it , and it even turned out nicely!

    Thank you, very much. I'll give it a try. I fully intend to do this quilt and learn as much from all of you as I can. This is such an encouraging bunch of people.
