They are machine pieced and free hand motion quilted. I quilted around the appliqué and in the corners where there is no appliqué I quilted

  2. Stabilizer for ties?

I've deconstructed them and need an iron on stabilizer before I start cutting and piecing. Does anyone have a suggestion as to the best kind that uses low heat to fuse? It has been many years since I needed fusible interfacing, so I don't know which to purchase.

    The love of these dogs for their master is incredible, if you don’t happen to like dogs, you’ll love the music. Trust me!

  6. Quilt as you go help

Size:  863.5 KBI decided to use up a lot of my mostly left over Civil War fabrics and when I saw this Bear Paw quilt in a recent magzine I knew it would be the one! It is taking a lot of time with the cutting, stitching, pressing, trimming, sewing etc. It seems to be more work then my Dear Jane quilt was!! But I am loving how it is looking so far.

  8. What are my binding options for a Grandmothers Flower Garden quilt?

It's a large queen or a smallish king size quilt (I'm not really sure I just started working on it without any directions) made with ~2800 1" hexagons. I was thinking about just binding it as is, but I am not sure it that would work since the hexagons are so small.
