    Debbie, your blocks are going to be beautiful! I love the color combinations.

    Very creative, Patti! Necessity is the mother of invention, huh?

    I used to do a lot of stained glass, so I decided to use the light box that I cut glass on. The grid on the top section was very helpful with cutting glass, but is sort of annoying when I'm tracing patterns on fabric. I'll live through it, though. :-)

    I used to do something quite similar to your lightbox, only I used a pull out storm window I took out those 2 leaves from the table. I put a lamp on the floor. I have the same lamp you are using, next to the sewing machine! What I really want is that bendable attachable little light they make for machines, but is so expensive. I think Amazon.com has them for cheaper. Need to check.
    Kathy they do those bendable lights in Ikea and they are cheap my friend, Thing is I don´t know if there is one near you.

    Heh Patti, I love that lightbox, I have been trying to think how I could make one and voila there you are using two chairs, I am going to do that, much easier to work with.

    This is for all newbies who may not have done much applique.

    If you use a fusible which has a glue side and use it as directed on the packet, then iron your design on to stick the material on which you have traced the design, you will find that your fabrics don´t move around. There is steam a seam 2 or Misty fuse both work well and it also stops your fabric from fraying whilst your working

    To get a nice clear view when you are stitching use the foot with the see through plastic on it and line up your needle to the outside edge of your applique. When you come to a point or the inside of the heart, decrease your stitch length.

    Hope that helps

    I will definitely be joining you. I have the book, have the fabric, and will be amazed if I've even started by the end of summer.

    I love the inventive light boxes ladies - thankfully I do have a commercial one, bought when my home made one kept getting too hot to work with comfortably.

    Debe, Sorry about getting confused thinking that it was stabliser - so it is just a question of waiting until you can wash it away, and your blocks will look lovely.

    Cheri - you will soon have that other quilt done, and then what will be stopping you from starting this one?

Maybe that came from living with 3 boys & only 1 bath. I was always cleaning it, sometimes multiple times a day! The next house we bought had 3 & the boys were responsible for their own! I took care of the guest one.
    i am so with you...the bathroom is the only room i worry about...but i quit cooking because is picky and complains and he is retired so if no dinner made when i get home; i don't make it. :D
