    I just went and ironed all my little applique pieces to the FRONT of my fabric! Think it's time to go and read a book for a while...lol

    Not stupid; perhaps too tired (sigh). After a nice break it will all go together well. Enjoy that book or massage, or whatever it takes to make the break worthwhile (smile).

    Yep...I often have "nothing is going to plan" days. Tomorrow will be better...cup of tea, a read and a walk round the garden usually helps.

    Would it be possible to re-iron it and yank it up while still hot?

    I did that on one piece of fabric, didn't work well on the next one I did wrong.

    I put the WonderUnder on the right instead of wrong side af a kit fabric -- had to make two wall hangings, one a mirror image of the other!

    I'm trying to put this SB Sue behind me & am trying to push forward with it. I framed one block yesterday afternoon & was planning to frame a 2nd but ran out of steam. This morning got up & went to work on it...noticed I'd cut the pieces exactly backward!!

    You've created a new design element. It's not a mistake it's new technique that will take the quilting world by storm. They will name it after you and you will be famous!

    No? too much? ok, take a nap or break come back at it later once you're refreshed.

    Sorry...didn't explain...it's the fusible webbing (vlisofix?) that I ironed to the front insted of the back of the fabric I was using for my applique pieces. The stuff with the paper backing that you peel off before you iron your pieces onto your main fabric
