    Hi, I just love those watercolour quilts and would love to try and make one, bit scary I know but there is obviously a trick in doing it the easier way, I think :?

    Would really appreciate your help on this one. :D

    Hey Elle... check with Izy- I think I threw in some of the interfacing for her to play with in the first box. Maybe I just intended to, but check with her. Oh wait a minute.... she might have traded it for some hot kisses from a Spanish soap opera star.... yup.... nevermind... :D :D :D

    I have the book Watercolor Landscape Quilts by Cathy Geier and she does a quick, no-fuss fold and sew technique. Might try looking at her work

    I have a watercolor wallhanging I'm going to be starting. Had to wait for the quilt fuse before I could make it.
    Got the quilt fuse, now I just need to find time with all the other WIPs I have going now.

    Hi there, Am I right in thinking with this quick fuse you donīt have to do a button hole stitching or satin stitch around the blocks. it just kinda fuses the fabric together :?

    Morning Terri, Is quilt fuse the same stuff as what Cathy sent over to me, a fusible webbing which Cathy showed me how to place all the pieces on, fuse then stitch by folding over on the seams???

    I'm thinking it's the same.
    You put your squares on it, iron it down, then fold and stitch.
    You can read about it here

    Oh wow Terri that sounds great stuff. Have got an idea for a middle section to start of my next quilt idea. Well it could be the 200th one buzzing around in my brain, but will have a dabble first with this amazing fusing.

    Thanks for your help. :D

    Not a problem!
    Once I finish up the ones I have going, I'm going to TRY the one I have.
    Will most likely do a "test" first so I can make sure I kinda know what I'm doing.

    Terri you are sooo funny.... I am telling you... this fusing stuff is just like making rice krispie treats. You're going to have to lie to your family on how hard it is.

    Elle....You do realised how SMALL your pieces are gonna be...
    Make sure you adjust your stitch length, oh and you might have to find a really small foot and wear those extra strong glasses I saw you admiring in the charity shop.........I just cut your 6" square to bring on Tuesday...it will have to be a 'micro watercolour' may I suggest a dolls quilt..TEE HEE :twisted: :twisted:

    Yes, the pieces are small. 2 inch squares! UGH!
    That's the reason for using the quilt fuse!

    Terri, you really were tired when you read through these comments...I was winding Elle up telling her I was only gonna let her have a 6" piece of the fusible stuff. so she would have to use super small pieces to make a quilt don't you see???....I don't wanna share - gonna throw me doll out of me pram as we say over here lol!!!!
