I am new to quilting and I had to go and start out doing two at the same time. Well now I have two that I just put into frames, because they are too stiff to sew. I tried freezer paper and wasn't very good at that. So I bought Heat and bond lite (It says its for applique) Now they are stiff. What would you guys suggest is the best for a newby? I'm pretty upset too because the lighthouse was going to be a x-mas gift.
