    jenniky -

    the wonderdots are my own creation, lol. I dont think its an item you can get seperately. I use the scraps from varioous projects with wonderunder used, aqs tend to have little bits a ieces of unused wonderunder left pover. Trim them down tot he size i want and voila - wonder dots for things like quick basting.

    Ssnare - Welcome Aboard. I look forward to seeing the blocks you pick out for your QAYG Orphaned block Project. Thanks you for your review on the Sullivan's quilting basting spray.

    Vagabondindigo - Your are most correct. I couldn't find anything on wonder dots. So what we are looking at is using the scraps from double sided fusible pellon to make small "SAY, Dime or Nickle size dots to use as a baste to hold your layers together? Are there any pros and cons to using this method. Have you found that the size of your square you are holding together plays a part in the success?? I think this is a great idea and Im sure going to explore it.
    Have an awesome day!

    vagabondindigo, the wonderdots are such a great idea! I will have to give that a try.

    SewExtremeSeams - Please share your results and thoughts on the method with us once you have given it a try.

    The more we share our sewing experiences the more we learn. So I will continue to encourage everyone to give input to our discussions. I am adding a little more information to the steps and pictures of quilting the blocks then I originally had planned. I want to include covering a little information on a walker foot and FMQ foot(darning foot). Remember if at anytime you want to look at just the posts of the tutorials you can click on the link to my blog in my signature. I am blogging all of the tutorial posts. Thanks Ladies.
    Have an awesome day!

    I think I'll try it. I am feeling the need to make a prayer quilt for an old friend. I could work on this while on break from FMQ the QOV that's just going to the machine. I'll have to set up another machine, but that's no problem. Warning, it will be VERY simple - nothing fancy on this one. I'm depending on color to make it desirable.

    vagabondindigo, would little pieces of the Stitch Witchery sold by the yard work? Then you don't have to deal with the paper backing.

    The only QAYG I've done was a Log Cabin done in the manner where you put the strips right on the sandwiched backing and batting. Made a great handwork project, but when I realized it'd be years before I finished a quilt, I put some together in fours and sold them as wallhangings to raise money for mission work. That was a while back.

    Here we go. Off to grab and cut some strips. I have my background - just need 22x3" scraps.

    Too late to edit - Jenniky- this quilt will be set on point. Will I treat the setting triangles like a block after the square blocks are finished ?

    Im going to say yes right off the top of my head if you are using the current method Im showing. I would need to have a gander at a picture of the finished quilt. Depending on the size of your triangles you might want to quilt and over sized square and then cut your triangle pieces out from the quilted block then attach them to your quilted blocks set on point. This is a variation on the current method I am using. I have not tried it yet. But if you just give me a picture of and example of a finished quilt using the pattern I can give you some pointers from what I have learned.
    Have an awesome day!
