I enlarged the pattern since I do the satin stitch around all the pieces and bigger is easier. Since this is a quilt pattern, the pieces are already reversed and ready for tracing. Trace them onto Wonder Under fusible web (it is cheaper and I buy it by the bolt including the placement numbers or letters.. Next I cut around the traced pieces (no on the lines) to reduce the amount of fabric getting stuck up during fusing. Choose the fabrics (I love batiks because they fray less and I love the colors).

Hurt my neck somehow last week. Ended up in the er. The pain was worse than any before. Including my two babies and hysterectomy. Took lots of pain meds for a few days and couldn't stand taking them. Finally feeling a little better.
Go for a follow up on Friday and hope to be back to quilting this weekend.
I can't wait to start a new project.

Worked on my Nov. DQ today -- red, white and black -- 4 fabrics. It's going to have two sides, each very different. I used lots of HSTs on one side. The second side is made of strips and squares. The idea came from a 1987 book, Strip Quilting, that I found in the library in Hayward, WI today. I love to look at older quilting books -- some of the things they talk about are quite funny now. This book recognizes the rotary cutter and the ruler, but still talks about pinning strip sets into cardboard,

Hi one and all, I need to do a little brain picking! In other words HELP!!!
I have made quilts for friends and family. I have even sold a few (didn't make them to sell, but it just worked out that way), but I have been asked to finish a friends mothers quilt (only top finished at this time). This was made back in the 40's, but never finished. I am looking at making two lap quilts out of this one quilt top (friend has two kids and wants to be able to give each one something from the grandmother
