    What I learned at the quilt show

    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.

    I'm doing Dear Jane, too!
    I watched Sharon Shamber video on using "light weight foundation" (Pelon fusible on oneside) to applique and would never have tried without it! It stays on the piece and is easy to sew through.

    I'm so glad you found a way to help you! Do you know who your vendor is and if she has anything on-line?
    Here's the one I use.

    Never regret growing older, its a privilege denied to many.
    Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

    Quilt shows are suposed to inspire us and often there will be vendors ready, willing and able to teach us something. Hooray for you.

    Wish there was quilt shows closer to me. I would probably learn a lot from those seasoned quilters.

    I learned my applique prep technique from Amidon out of California. She demonstrated and I got the tools and DVD. When I went home, I completed the whole top of a chicken applique without a hitch. So fun.

    wonderful! it's always lovely to learn something useful. i went to the qlt show and didn't find much to buy. I thought i'd find a great template or tool to use but didn't. then found i couldn't use my gift cards to buy anything!! very upsetting. that was one reason i went! to buy things
