I go to the quilt show in Denver, CO every year. Last year there was a vendor there that showed me a really cool applique method using freezer paper, school glue and alittle pointy thing you put on your finger. So I went home and did a bunch of applique pieces and I really love it. Then it came time to stitch them and I just could never come up with a method I like....so off to the quilt show this year and stopped at her booth again and she just happened to be putting her pieces onto the background. She spent about 20 minutes with me giving me all her tips and came home and WaLa!! it works great. Been working on Dear Jane and anything that involved applique is in a pile as I don't like to hand sew and kept thinking on a good day, I'll sit down and do that...well just did one of my blocks and it looks great!!! I spent a great day at the show. Hope you all had a good day.
