    JANUARY BOM!!! Thanks melodylamour!!!

    Melodylamour created a thread with a list of BOMs. This is the first one I tackled. Here is meodylamour's thread:
    New BOMs 2012 All I've found so far

    Here is the link for Country Junction, the BOM this mini quilt is from:
    http://countryjunktion.com/2012BOM.html

    My sewing machine dislikes stitching through "fusible anything" so I did not stitch down the pieces. Skipped stitches everywhere. It looked terrible. The next applique I do I'll probably spray all the pieces with 505 Basting Spray since I know my machine will stitch through that.

    Regardless, this project was a lot of fun to make. I stippled around the snowman and snowflakes and did a loopy FMQ in the boarder fabric with stars thrown in. Also, I added JANUARY at the bottom of the mini quilt. It wasn't included in the pattern. I searched alphabets on the internet and picked one, checked the size of the letters, printed it in reverse, traced the letters on the fusible, etc., then added them.

    I'm looking forward to February!

    I do a lot of applique' work, I think the whimsical wall hangings are so much fun. Anyway, I've also had occasional times when the stitching gives me trouble. I have taken my needle out and cleaned it with alcohol, and if that doesn't work, I just put a new needle in. One of those will usually take care of the problem.
