    Thanks for your kind comments.

    Leslie, just try it--it's like free motion embroidery on steroids. I used a very narrow zig zag so you can't see if my lines weren't perfectly straight. And you can see the inspiration in person. Just drive up to Duluth and look through the lift bridge at sunrise on a slightly foggy but not really foggy morning. And stop at the quikt shop in Superior (home of the Lil twister) on your way through.

    Thanks for the pictures of this! I think I'm starting to understand the technique. It does turn out very cute! I wonder what would happen if you approximated the placement of the rule, rather than doing it precisely? Hmm, I feel an attack of Gwen Marston coming on!

    Yes, cookie cutters make wonderful templates for appliques. I have a set of hearts, animals and flower cookie cutters. If you are using the aluminum cutters just make sure the edges are smooth so as not to snag the fabric. Cut at least a 1/4 inch allowance for turning the edges of the applique, or cut the pattern exactly if you are doing a fusible & machine applique.

    It isnt the look of the board that's so frustrating, it's that everything takes so looong to load, cant find what I used to see, and the old one was was simple to use - like me. I guess I'm too old to learn new tricks.

    I hope you have a wonderful time in Florida. Don't worry, whatever you forgot, you can pick up there. Thanks for the encouraging words on staying on the board. I'm not ready to leave here yet!
