    Much to my surprise there was a package for me in yesterday's mail. Boston1954 sent me a book called Snippet Sensations. Thank You.


    (Gotta call a non-fabric surprise something besides a "firmie" - my first thought has NOTHING to do with books or patterns when I hear that word.)

    It's a book - if I copy the covers would I get into copyright trouble?

    Anyway - the cover says "Fast, Fusible Fabric Art For Quilted or Framed Projects

    Pictures/scenes are created by fusing small pieces of fabric to make pictures.

    If you have access to QNN TV Cindy Walter demonstrates the technique on Quilt Central episode 105.

    You could call it a "stiffy" but we wouldn't want anyone to get the wrong idea that we get "stiffies" in the mail now would we?? :wink: :wink: :lol:

    I've erased all the comments I'd written.

    Don't want to get a note from admin.

    It was me who asked originally when I was still a newbie on the board. I had just heard about squishies, but was waiting for a parcel of books to arrive and asked if there was a name for them, because of course, they couldn't be squishies. Well, I opend a bit of a can of worms, and there were, as you can imagine, a whole raft of suggestions. Firmie seemed the most innocent of the bunch. I leave the rest to your imagination, unless you can find it under search.

    It gives me a smile, also. Even when I'm not the one on the receiving end.
