Yesterday I did my best to try and remove Wonderunder from the quilt back I posted the pic of yesterday. No luck . So I had to make a decision to go ahead and try sewing the pieces on as they are. I look forward to gummy needles and a lot of difficulty when it comes to quilting this quilt.
The thing is I must get it finished. I have had it sitting hear for a year already and someone is waiting for it. It is so difficult to correct someone else's work but I have to do the best I can. The person who 'made' the original quilt did not sew on the pieces, but used Wonderunder to adhere it to a quilt that wasn't even quilted and only had a couple ties over the entire quilt. Being asked to repair or remake this quilt has been a challenge and a long story. There is no seam allowance at all on any of the memorabilia. It was cut to the very edge. What I have to do is just zig-zag along the edges. I already told the recipient this wold be all I could do under the circumstances.
So this and maybe another little project is on the agenda for today. I really need to make progress on this quilt. Heck this isn't even a quilt I can send out for quilting because of these gummy heavy pieces on the back. I will get it though and am confident it will come out fine. I want it better than fine though

    Well I finally was able to get each of the applique pieces on. I don't even like calling it applique! It is more like patches sewn onto a piece of fabric. Since there were absolutely no seam allowances I just don't have a clue how it is going to wear. I know every piece will fray and I can only hope that the zig-zag will hold things in place over time. Next step is to rebuild the back. time will tell.
